Establishes Clayton Model Pilot Program in DOE to provide school-based social emotional learning to students in grades kindergarten through five at certain public schools
S 2486 (Sweeney) NJEA believes that integrating social and emotional learning curricula into the classroom helps make the school environment more caring and inclusive for students. This bill would establish a pilot program in the Department of Education modeled on the social emotional learning program developed in the Clayton School District in Gloucester County. We understand that the Clayton Model has been successful in improving the social emotional health of students, and look forward to working with the Department of Education on this pilot program.
NJEA urges you to SUPPORT S2486.
