Social Emotional Learning (SEL) and Erin’s Law

Social and emotional learning is the process through which children develop awareness and management of their emotions; set and achieve important personal and academic goals; use social awareness and interpersonal skills to establish and maintain positive relationships; and demonstrate decision-making and responsible behaviors to achieve school and life success. There is a strong research base that these SEL competencies improve students’ social/emotional development, readiness to learn, classroom behavior, and academic performance. Please visit the link below to view the District’s Scope and Sequence for Social Emotional Learning.

SEL 3-5 Goals

In addition to our curriculum for Social Emotional Learning, the district also provides lessons based on the Child Protection units for the prevention of Childhood Sexual Abuse (Erin’s Law). The Committee for Children, a National organization, has developed these lessons. Please visit the link below to view the Scope and Sequence for these classroom lessons.
