The Student Interpersonal Skills Standards describe what students should know and do from Pre-Kindergarten through 12th grade. The standards provide a target for instruction for all educators, stakeholders, families and communities. These standards are not a curriculum but are to be used as a foundation for creating curriculum that is specific to each district’s student population. These standards transcend grade levels and content areas. Interpersonal skills are not meant to be an area to be scheduled and addressed, but infused, promoted, modeled and expected throughout the family, school and community in every aspect of a student’s day. Interpersonal skills can be explicitly taught when necessary in every classroom. Multiple opportunities for practice and a variety of assessment strategies need to be utilized for students to internalize these skills.
