Social-Emotional Supports

Students who are socially and emotionally healthy can focus their attention and energy on learning. Unfortunately, some students struggle with depression, live in fear, and suffer from mental health struggles and emotional challenges. We also have students who are socially isolated, have few meaningful personal connections, and who may feel uncertain or disengaged with their own futures. None of these situations is conducive to learning. For learning to be a priority, we must support students in all these areas. Jeffco Public Schools already has a strong commitment to social-emotional supports for students and this effort must continue.

Theory of Action

IF schools are supported and implement an evidence-based framework for behavior and social-emotional learning,
THEN student behavioral competence, social-emotional skills, and access to learning will increase.

SMART Goal

  • By 2022 student behavioral competence, social-emotional skills, and access to learning will improve as demonstrated by the average index for students on the Social Emotional (SE) Support items of at least 3.5 on the MYVH survey.
