Career, Standards, & Assessment Services Personal management and relationship skills are vital in all aspects of learning and of life. Students are most able to act in respectful and responsible ways when they have learned and practiced a range of social, emotional and character development skills. Effective social, emotional and character development skills support academic achievement in students and constructive engagement by staff, families and communities. Students learn best in a respectful, safe and civil school environment where adults are caring role models. Bullying/Harassment Prevention and safe school initiatives are most sustainable when embedded systemically in a whole school Social, Emotional, and Character Development (SECD) programming.
