Social and emotional learning (SEL) is the process through which children gain and apply the knowledge, attitudes, and skills necessary to deal effectively with daily tasks and challenges.

Jeffco Public Schools has adopted the five core components of social and emotional learning outlined by the Collaborative for Academic, Social, and Emotional Learning (CASEL).

Self-Awareness

Self-Management

Social Awareness

Relationship Skills

Responsible Decision Making (CASEL, 2020)

SEL takes place within the context of safe and supportive school, family, and community environments that aids children’s development and provides opportunities and recognition for successfully applying these skills.

Implementing SEL

A systemic approach to SEL intentionally cultivates a caring, participatory, and equitable learning environment and evidence-based practices that actively involve all students in their social, emotional, and academic growth. This approach infuses social and emotional learning into every part of students’ daily lives—across all of their classrooms, during all times of the school day, and when they are in their homes and communities.
