Social Emotional Learning (SEL) in District 86
District 86 strongly believes that our staff provides instruction and modeling that helps develop the social-emotional skills of our students, but we are continuously working to improve. Consistent with District 86's Equity Statement, our district's Panorama access, and the Strategic Plan, our goal is to develop a more systematic and data-driven process for addressing the social-emotional skills of our students.
Each member of the District 86 community will exhibit the motivation and social-emotional skills to achieve academic/professional goals and physical well-being for the success of the individual in all spheres of influence.
Our mission is to develop in the District 86 community the social emotional skills of:

- Emotional Intelligence: Why It Can Matter More Than I.Q. (1995/2005) Goleman, D.
