What is Skills for Learning & Life (SLL)?
Skills for Learning & Life (SLL) lead to youth and adults achieving academic, post-secondary, career and life success. SLL strengthens teaching and learning of academic content, builds confidence, supports mental health, and enables youth and adults to overcome challenges.
The School District of Palm Beach County's SLL Framework is based upon required Health Instruction as outlined in Florida State Statute 1003.42(n)(4) and involves acquiring and effectively applying knowledge, attitudes, and skills of self-awareness and self-management, responsible decision-making, resiliency, relationship skills (including conflict resolution), and social awareness (including understanding and respecting other viewpoints and backgrounds).
School Programs that support SLL:
• Safe School Ambassadors
• Peer Mediation
• Morning Meeting
• Community Circles
• We Dine Together
• Safety Patrols
• Kindness Matters
The School District of Palm Beach County realizes the importance of a safe and supportive school climate. Successful implementation of SLL curriculum and programming is essential for student success as it allows for students to practice life skills throughout their school experience.
