Social Emotional Learning

An important element of District 90's commitment to the whole child is attention to the social emotional needs and health of each of our students.

What is Social Emotional Learning (SEL)?

Extensive evaluations found that SEL:

  • Enhances student achievement
  • Helps students develop self-control
  • Improves relationships at all levels of the school community
  • Reduces conflict among students
  • Improves teachers' classroom management
  • Helps young people be healthier and more successful in school and life

Students develop social and emotional skills through effective classroom instruction, student engagement in positive activities in and out of school, and SEL Graphic.pngbroad parent and community involvement in SEL planning, implementation and evaluation.

Five SEL competencies identified by the Collaborative for Academic, Social and Emotional Learning (CASEL) are:

  • Self-awareness
  • Self-management
  • Social awareness
  • Relationship skills
  • Responsible decision-making
  • SEL in District 90

The principals, school social workers, and staff members lead efforts to build cultures that incorporate manners and respect in all our interactions. This includes the High Five Goals at Roosevelt, The Willard Way and the Lincoln manners approach. We also provide for small classes led by dedicated and compassionate faculty and staff.
