Dear Broward County Public School Families, We hope this finds you well.
Broward County Public Schools (BCPS) has been focusing on Social and Emotional Learning (SEL), a framework that develops life skills such as self-awareness, resilience, and grit. SEL can be defined as: “the process through which children and adults acquire and effectively apply the knowledge, attitudes and skills necessary to understand and manage emotions, set and achieve positive goals, feel and show empathy for others, establish and maintain positive relationships, and make responsible decisions. (CASEL.org)
BCPS values input from our students, which provides valuable information to help guide and plan instruction. As such, we will be asking for student feedback using online surveys. These surveys will be given during class time and take approximately 15 minutes. We will be asking students to reflect and answer questions to adapt our lessons and programs to best meet their needs. We are partnering with rethink Ed, a third-party vendor.
