Social Emotional Learning

In Pasco County Schools, we educate the whole child. Our students learn to think critically and solve complex problems while also becoming compassionate human beings. We ensure that all students have the skills they need to become responsible and contributing members of our community. 

To support students, staff and families Pasco County Schools implements social emotional standards and teaching practices that help establish a strong foundation for behavior in the classroom.  Below you can see the SEL standards and grade level benchmarks that are use within lesson planning to promote positive interactions and learning environment within the classroom. ​
