Your Source for Social-Emotional Learning Activities
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.
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.
The Kansas Communities That Care (KCTC) is student survey that provides KCKPS with important information about student's attitudes and perceptions about their school, community, and peer relationships. It also tracks student's attitudes and perceptions about alcohol, tobacco, and drugs.
With the insights that the KCTC provides, we are able to plan programs and activities within our school communities and partner with the community to provide support to our students and families.
We hope you will allow your child to participate.Please take a moment to find your student's school's permission slip and complete it for each of your 6, 8, 10, or 12th grade student.
