Social-emotional learning supports early college and career readiness by helping students build on their resiliency, develop pro-social behavior, and take part in positive experiences beyond the classroom. These experiences are essential for students to become strong candidates as they apply to college, and give them cultural competency as well as transferrable meta-cognitive skills to succeed after their transition from their high school to a post-secondary institution.
Working across schools with key school staff, including principals, deans, social workers, teachers and counselors, the Urban Assembly Social-Emotional Learning Team employs the following key strategies to address mental health, emotional, behavioral, and social challenges:
- Develop and Establish Behavior Support Systems
- Develop and Establish Social-Emotional Learning Programming
- Monitor and Enhance School Culture/Climate
