Social Emotional Learning

SEL Framework at Tecumseh Public Schools

Social Emotional Learning (SEL) supports the TPS mission to be Uncompromisingly Student Centered by providing structures that help each student to identify their own unique needs, interests and goals. We are committed to providing opportunities for stduents to develop at their pace and with the structures and supports they need to be successful.

It is our goal that each student meets the Exit Student Outcomes as defined in our Strategic Design. The core competencies of Social Emotional Learning are demonstrated with students who are:

  • Self-actualized individuals
  • Self-directed, continuous students
  • Caring communicators
  • Compassionate contributors
  • Self-assured explorers
  • Invested, contributing citizens
  • Self-motivated innovators

More information about how SEL supports academic and personal success can be found in the Frequently Asked Questions section of this page below.

  • acquire and 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 relations
  • make responsible decisions
