Social and Emotional Learning

TTUSD recognises Social and Emotional Learning as an integral part of a child’s growth, development and academic success. We utilize evidence-based SEL curriculum at all school sites K-12 that teach competence in the areas of Self-Awareness, Self-Management, Social Awareness, Relationship Skills and Responsible Decision Making, creating a learning environment where students learn to develop and maintain positive relationships, become life-long learners, and contribute to a more caring and just world. These skills support academic learning and set students up for lifelong success.  The competencies are in alignment with CASEL (Collaborative for Academic, Social and Emotional Learning), the nation's leading organization advancing the development of academic, social and emotional competence for all students.
