Satchel Pulse for Social & Emotional Learning (SEL)
August 28, 2023
The Douglas County School District is pleased to announce the second annual Satchel Pulse SEL, a tool to help us monitor and improve the social-emotional learning of all our students. What is Social-Emotional Learning? Social-emotional learning (SEL) programs help youth and adults learn and apply knowledge, skills, and attitudes to enrich their personal and academic lives. Studies have shown that social-emotional learning programs increase academic performance, attendance, behavior, and post-secondary success.
SEL skills include developing healthy identities, managing emotions, setting and achieving goals, developing empathy for others, establishing and maintaining supportive relationships, collaborating with others, and making responsible and caring decisions.
How does Satchel Pulse work? Satchel Pulse is an easy-to-use survey with 25 simple questions. Students use the survey to rate their self-awareness, self-management, social awareness, relationship, and responsible decision-making skills. Student answers help us learn how to best support our students’ ongoing development in these five critical skills.
When will it start? For the 2023-2024 school year, the Satchel Pulse SEL survey will be given to students in grades 4, 5, 6, 9, 10 and 12 at school between September 11th and September 22nd.
Where can I find out more information about SEL? Support Services Satchel Pulse Who can I contact to learn more about the survey or the social-emotional learning program? School counselors will be your point of contact.
Thank you for partnering with us to support your student. @satchelpulse • email@example.com • 516-568-0858
