Reimagining Excellence: A Blueprint for Integrating Social and Emotional Well-Being and Academic Excellence in Schools
Just as constructing a well-designed school building requires a blueprint, so does designing an effective and equitable learning program that addresses the needs of the whole child. Success occurs through a cycle of strong planning, action, and continuous monitoring.
This blueprint developed by the National Center for Social and Emotional Learning and School Safety highlights key indicators of learning programs that successfully integrate equity, well-being, and academics. It leverages an asset-based approach that values diversity in race, culture, language, ability, and ways of interacting with the world, rather than characterizing students and families by what they may need or lack.
This guide includes six areas of focus:
- Responsive Relationships
- Climate & Culture
- Instructional Materials
- Professional Learning Leadership
