What is Social Emotional Learning?

Social Emotional Learning is how children and adults understand and manage their emotions, set goals, feel and show empathy for others, establish positive relationships, and make responsible decisions (CASEL). It is organized into 5 competencies and has been shown to increase academic achievement and improve overall behavior.

  • "Systemic SEL is an approach to create equitable learning conditions that actively involve all Pre-K to Grade 12 students in learning and practicing social, emotional, and academic competencies. These conditions require aligned policies, resources, and actions at state and district levels that encourage local schools and communities to build the personal and professional capacities of adults to: implement and continuously improve evidence-based programs and practices; create an inclusive culture that fosters caring relationships and youth voice, agency, and character; and support coordinated school-family-community partnerships to enhance student development."
