Social Emotional Learning

The vision of this team is to create a structured, multi-tiered, and comprehensive experience within a proactive and responsive culture that promotes student independence. To create an environment where students are capable of behaving appropriately and productively without the supervision of others and can be self-directed in learning how to constructively meet their own needs as they move through the Pelham School District and into an independent life.

Social Emotional Learning (SEL)
SEL Framework


Social and emotional learning (SEL) enhances students’ capacity to integrate skills, attitudes, and behaviors to deal effectively and ethically with daily tasks and challenges. Like many similar frameworks, CASEL’s integrated framework promotes intrapersonal, interpersonal, and cognitive competence. There are five core competencies that can be taught in many ways across many settings. Many educators and researchers are also exploring how best to assess these competencies.

CASEL's Framework has 5 Core Competencies:
Self Awareness
Self-management
Social Awareness
Relationship Skills
