Second Steps Program

Second Step is a research based curriculum to promote social and academic success. This is a universal prevention program that proactively teachers critical social-emotional skills to all children. The curriculum goals are focused on reducing aggressive and disruptive behavior while promoting social-emotional competence. The ability to transfer learning to real-life situations is a major goal of the Second Step program that must be supported through repeated practice in multiple settings. All staff (administrators, teachers, and support personnel) play a role in reinforcing and modeling desired skills and behaviors to achieve this end.

The Second Step curriculum is taught to students by classroom teachers. Lessons are presented and discussed, as a class, on a weekly basis. The lessons are scripted for teachers and require limited preparation time. Supplemental lessons are provided throughout the school year by the school counselor aligned with American School Counseling Association Standards. The school is aligning it with their Roughrider 3 of being Respectful, Responsible, and Safe.
