The Florida Department of Education’s Offices of Safe Schools, Healthy Schools and Title IV, Part A Program have forged a partnership to strengthen district and state primary prevention efforts. Our plan focuses on building statewide capacity for safe and supportive school environments via SEL. “SEL is the process through which children and adults acquire and effectively 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 relationships, and make responsible decisions.”
