Social Emotional Learning

  • SEL
    Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) is a lifelong process where children and adults acquire knowledge, skills, and dispositions related to the five competencies.
    1. Self-Awareness
    2. Self-Management
    3. Social Awareness
    4. Relationship Skills
    5. Responsible Decision-Making


    SEL is rooted in brain research and focuses on starting and ending each day with a consistent, ritualistic pattern that connects teachers and students as well as students with other students. Washoe County School District is focusing on three areas to message this idea through all of its schools:
    1. Climate and Culture
    2. Integration and Infusion into existing curriculum
    3. Direct Instruction
