Definition

 

Social, Emotional, and Academic Development (SEAD) is the integration of all learning dimensions into the educational experience in support of positive outcomes for students through whole-child development. Social, emotional, and cognitive/academic dimensions are all imperative to long-term success, as they are intricately connected in the way students learn and experience the world, and are mutually beneficial and mutually reinforcing in the educational environment. San Antonio ISD approaches this work through three essential elements: culture and climate, explicit instruction, and integration.

Educational equity is inextricably linked to SEAD. In order to achieve full and equal opportunities for every student to succeed in life, it is essential to prepare for college and career, which requires knowledge and skill development across all learning dimensions (Council of Distinguished Scientists, 2017). All students must have access to the appropriate resources aligned to their needs, robust academic opportunities, and rich experiences needed to develop agency and identity through the many phases of child and adolescent development (Integrating Social, Emotional, and Academic Development: An Action Guide for School Leadership Teams, 2019).
