General Information

What is Social-Emotional Learning?

Social-emotional learning is the process through which students learn to understand and manage their thoughts, mindsets and emotions. As students grow their social-emotional skills, they become better at self-managing, working with others and setting and achieving goals.

Why is it Important?

In order for students to become college and career ready, students must demonstrate well-developed social-emotional skills. In order to support this growth, KCKPS utilizes the Kansas Social-Emotional Character Development standards to help students build core principles, make responsible decisions, self-manage and to successfully work with others.
