Social Emotional Learning In Newtown Public Schools
 
Vision for Social Emotional Learning (SEL)
 
Newtown Public Schools are committed to the development of social and emotional skills. We believe social emotional learning competencies are essential for students to be successful in our schools and become contributing citizens in our local and global communities.

Central to our belief is that students can continually progress in their abilities to manage emotions, make responsible decisions, work cooperatively, resolve conflicts, and overcome challenges. This progress is dependent on effective teaching of SEL skills, opportunities to practice SEL skills in school, and a school culture where everyone is engaged in SEL using a common language and research-based practices.

The links in the About SEL section provide an overview of SEL in Newtown Public Schools.
