SEL For Parents & Community

SEL, or Social and Emotional learning, involves developing skills and strategies that allow children and adults to understand their own emotions and the emotions of others, and to use this understanding in their choices and relationships.

Some students struggle with academics. Others struggle with behavioral challenges. Still others struggle with both. How do schools respond to students with challenges or struggles that interfere with their ability to learn?
