The continuum of Social Emotional Learning includes:

  • creating a sense of belonging for students
  • teaching pro-social Skills
  • encouraging positive mental health awareness
  • building an integrated service approach to mental health
The development of a strategic, intentional and systemic action plan across the continuum is needed. To this end, the school district established an employee Joint Representative Committee to determine how to create and implement such a plan. After much work, this committee has created a report of recommendations. Please click HERE to read this report. 

The North Vancouver School District will continue to prioritize Social Emotional Learning and Mental Health in order to support success for all students.
