Panorama: Social-Emotional Learning Survey
Social-emotional learning (SEL) describes the mindsets, skills, attitudes, and feelings that help students succeed in school, career, and life. At it's core, SEL focuses on students' fundamental needs for motivation, social connectedness, and self-regulation as prerequisites for learning. Panorama's Social-Emotional Learning Survey is designed for students to reflect on their school environment and experiences to help educators learn more about how to better support students' needs. See the Social-Emotional Learning Measures section below to learn more about the topics that are a part of the survey and then view the Sample Survey section to see the questions that will be asked of students.
*New for 2023-24:
DMPS will continue to administer the Panorama SEL survey for students in grades K-12 whose families opt-in to have their children participate in the survey. During online registration, families will have the ability to choose if they want their student(s) to participate in the Panorama SEL survey. This is a reversal of past practice in which DMPS administered the survey to all students except those whose families opted-out of taking the survey. For more information about the Panorama SEL survey, please see the resources below or contact your school's administration.
