Seal of the State of Nevada

WHEREAS, social emotional learning (SEL) is the process through which all young people and adults acquire and apply the knowledge, skills, and attitudes to develop healthy identities, manage emotions and achieve personal and collective goals, feel and show empathy for others, establish and maintain supportive relationships, and make responsible and caring decisions; and

WHEREAS, SEL competencies develop throughout our lives and are essential to success in our schools, workplaces, homes, and communities and allow individuals to contribute meaningfully to society; and

WHEREAS, SEL can be taught and developed during childhood, adolescence, and beyond and schools, families, and the wider community must be engaged to enhance the strength, depth, and pace of acquisition of SEL competencies; and

WHEREAS, supporting SEL is a wise use of public resources because there can be long-term social and economic benefits to society from the implementation of evidence-based SEL;

NOW, THEREFORE, I, STEVE SISOLAK, GOVERNOR OF THE STATE OF NEVADA, do hereby proclaim March 26, 2021 as
