Social and Emotional Learning

We have designed our Ki Individual Development (KID) program to provide Social and Emotional Learning, as well as character building to our students.  This program is embedded throughout all of our classes to provide a well-rounded education.
  • While our six (6) K.I.D competencies stay the same – we ask each residential facility that teams up with Ki Charter School District to help collaborate on specific language to produce consistency between our school and the facility.
What is Social and Emotional Learning?

Social and emotional learning (SEL) is 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. 

SEL programming is based on the understanding that the best learning emerges in the context of supportive relationships that make learning challenging, engaging, and meaningful. 

Social and emotional skills are critical to being a good student, citizen, and worker. Many risky behaviors (e.g., drug use, violence, bullying, and dropping out) can be prevented or reduced when multiyear, integrated efforts are used to develop students' social and emotional skills. This is best done through effective classroom instruction, student engagement in positive activities in and out of the classroom, and broad parent and community involvement in program planning, implementation, and evaluation. 

Effective SEL programming begins in preschool and continues through high school.
