Social Emotional Learning
Some of the programs we use to teach social and emotional skills and to build relationships are:
Funded by the U.S. Department of Education's Office of Special Education Programs (OSEP) and the Office of Elementary and Secondary Education (OESE), the Technical Assistance Center on PBIS supports schools, districts, and states to build systems capacity for implementing a multi-tiered approach to social, emotional and behavior support. The broad purpose of PBIS is to improve the effectiveness, efficiency and equity of schools and other agencies. PBIS improves social, emotional and academic outcomes for all students, including students with disabilities and students from underrepresented groups.
Social and Emotional Learning: Students discover and practice empathy, self regulation, problem solving and executive functioning through games, interactive videos, discussion, home links and more.
Bullying Prevention: By teaching all community members the three R’s of Recognizing, Refusing and Reporting bullying, we empower bystanders and prevent bullying.
Restorative Practices are based on principles and processes that emphasize the importance of positive relationships as central to building community and restoring relationships when harm has occurred. They are a disciplinary paradigm shift in which the process of repairing harm and resolving conflict is done with students, instead of to them.
