What is Social and Emotional Learning?

Sacramento City Unified School District is committed to providing our community with schools that are safe, caring places for children to enjoy learning, to become independent thinkers, to make lasting friendships and to master essential standards of learning. Through SCUSD’s Social and Emotional Learning initiative, students will gain skills in five competencies that researchers agree are essential to success in school and life: Self-management; self-awareness; responsible decision-making; relationship skills; and social awareness.
