Mental Health & Social Emotional Learning

A key focus for all grade levels is social emotional well-being and community building. It is important that all students feel a strong belonging to the academic community. As a school district, we utilize the RULER approach for social emotional well-being. We also use CASEL resources, SEL interventions, restorative circles and other resources to support all students in the areas of social emotional learning and belonging.
