Social Emotional Learning
Fundamental skills for life effectiveness.
focus on Social Emotional Learning (SEL) enhances our ability to develop effective instructional practice for all students.
Our work is based on the understanding that the best learning emerges
in the context of supportive relationships that make learning
challenging, engaging, and meaningful.
OUSD's SEL standards align with and support
Common Core and
Next Generation Science Standards. Our standards also support our ability to ethically connect
across race, class, culture, language, gender identity, sexual orientation,
learning needs, and age.
