  • SEL Student Self-Evaluation Survey 

    Teachers will work with students in grades 4-12 to administer a Social & Emotional Learning (SEL) Survey from our BCPS Partner, ReThink Ed. Surveys will be administered during the first semester and second semester. 

    "Rethink Ed SEL is a comprehensive social-emotional learning program that provides solutions that include professional learning for adults, K-12 multi-tiered grade-level curriculum, SEL assessments, behavior tracking, and home support tools all in one web-based platform. Rethink SEL supports all stakeholders in developing the social-emotional competencies necessary to create a safe and supportive school, family, and community environment where both students and adults thrive, are respected and respectful, and where everyone engages in active learning, together."  (

    The SEL Survey consists of forty-five questions in English, Spanish, Haitian-Creole, and Portuguese.

     The Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) Student Survey is part of the BCPS Strategic Plan and addresses 5 of the 6 Florida SEL Health Skills/Competencies.

    • Self-awareness
    • Self-management
    • Social Awareness
    • Social Skills
    • Responsible Decision Making
    • Resiliency

    The goal is to increase the students' SEL understanding, knowledge, and skills as measured by the SEL Surveys. The Student Self-Evaluation average is from  2.6 to 3.2 by year 5 (2024).
