What is SEL?
Social and Emotional Learning is the process through which children
and adults acquire and effectively apply the knowledge, attitudes, and
skills necessary to understand and manage emotions, set and achieve
positive goals, feel and show empathy for others, establish and maintain
positive relationships, and make responsible decisions.
Newtown Public Schools aligns its SEL approach with the
Collaborative for Academic, Social and Emotional Learning’s
Framework for Social and Emotional Learning (www.casel.org)
