SEL in Action
Robinson Middle School
SEL at PISD
Social emotional learning is an educational process through which skills for life effectiveness are intentionally taught and modeled in a safe, supportive, and culturally responsive environment.
In Plano ISD, we will grow to understand and manage emotions, care for self and others, develop empathy, build resiliency, and solve problems effectively and ethically. Social emotional learning will empower students to become responsible, productive and contributing members of the global community.

Community Keepers Training sessions
Our last training for this year was on February 4th. It was about being an "UPstander".

PISD offers Parent Engagement series throughout the year. The goal of these sessions is to educate parents about social emotional learning and provide them with strategies to utilize at home.
