Red Clay School District SEB Screener
Dear Parents and Guardians,
The Red Clay Consolidated School District (RCCSD) is committed to supporting every student’s academic growth as well as their social emotional and behavioral (SEB) wellbeing. As part of this commitment, along with Delaware’s Multi-Tiered System of Support (MTSS) state regulations, all teachers (K-5) and students (6-12) will be completing an emotional wellbeing screener this school year.
An SEB screener can identify behavioral and emotional strengths as well as areas in need of growth. This data will allow our school teams to offer additional and more targeted intervention to support the SEB needs of all students.
The screener that the multidisciplinary district committee selected is called the SAEBRS, or Social, Academic, Emotional, Behavior Rating Screener. At the K-5 level, the screener will ask teachers to rate their students, based on observations, using a total of 19 questions ranging across three different types of behaviors. At the 6-12 level, students will be asked to rate themselves.
The SAEBRS Screener looks at the following areas of social/emotional wellbeing:
1. Social Behavior
2. Academic Behavior
3. Emotional Behavior
Please reach out to your school if you have any questions or would like to discuss further.

Hello Parents, We are noticing that students are using cell phones at school during the day. This is just a reminder of the school policy. We ask for you to review this with your student. Thank you for your cooperation!
● Students who happen to bring a cell phone to school must have the cell phone turned off and stored away for the entire school day.
● Students who display cell phones in school will have them confiscated and a parent will need to come to school to pick it up.
The school staff is NOT RESPONSIBLE for the theft or damage of personal belongings. Parents please discuss the importance of being responsible for your personal items with your child.
