Behavior & Social-Emotional Learning (SEL)

IUSD is committed to ensuring that all students learn at high levels and receive the highest quality educational experience we can envision. To achieve this, we employ a multi-tiered system of support (MTSS) to identify and address academic, behavioral, and social-emotional needs of our students.

IUSD uses a continuum of support to ensure studetns have the behavioral and social-emotional learning (SEL) needed to be successful.

What is SEL?

Social and emotional learning (SEL) is an integral part of education and human development. SEL is the process through which all young people and adults acquire and apply the knowledge, skills, and attitudes to develop healthy identities, manage emotions and achieve personal and collective goals, feel and show empathy for others, establish and maintain supportive relationships, and make responsible and caring decisions.

Irvine Unified School District is committed to embedding the CASEL 5 Social Emotional Competencies  within academic instruction so every student can increase prosocial skills, executive function capacity, empathy, and enhances higher level critical thinking skills.
