Character, Social-Emotional Learning & School Culture

To succeed in civic life, students must set and achieve goals, show empathy for others, and have positive relationships.

 

The Utah State Board of Education's Portrait of a Graduate (a framework for identifying the ideal characteristics of a Utah graduate after going through Utah's K-12 system) recognizes the school (and an inclusive school culture) as a place where such dispositions of character and habits of mind can be developed and for the good of civic life.
