Social Emotion Learning
Sacramento City Unified School District (SCUSD) has two foundational initiatives aimed at fulfilling our commitment to students and families:Common Core State Standards and Social-Emotional Learning (SEL).
Through SEL, students will gain skills in five competencies that researchers agree are essential to success in school and life. Those competencies are: Self-management; self-awareness; responsible decision-making; relationship skills; and social awareness.
With these skills, students will learn to manage their own emotions and behavior, which in turn will help them become more successful students. Through instruction and role modeling, children will learn how to control their reactions and how to get along better with others, creating a happier learning environment for teachers, staff and kids.
SEL in SCUSD – We Are. We Belong. We Can.
