SEL in Jeffco

SEL Specialist Pamphlet

Social and emotional learning (SEL) describes a set of competencies and skills that enhances students’ capacity to integrate skills, attitudes, and behaviors to deal effectively and ethically with daily tasks and challenges.


Jeffco Public Schools has adopted the five core components of social and emotional learning outlined by the Collaborative for Academic, Social, and Emotional Learning (CASEL). 

    • Self-Awareness
    • Self-Management
    • Social Awareness
    • Relationship Skills
    • Responsible Decision Making
      • (CASEL, 2017)

SEL takes place within the context of safe, participatory school, family, and community environments that support children’s development and provides opportunities and recognition for successfully applying these competencies.

This approach promotes intrapersonal, interpersonal, and cognitive competence.

This website is intended to serve as a resources for those implementing Social Emotional Learning as well as those investigating the evidence based approach to implementation.
