Social Emotional Learning
Social and emotional learning (SEL) is the process through which children and adults understand and manage emotions, set and achieve positive goals, feel and show empathy for others, establish and maintain positive relationships, and make responsible decisions.
Student Events are fun and unique educational opportunities that challenge students to think in complex ways and apply the knowledge and skills they have acquired in an environment outside of the classroom.
Working for the Tuolumne County Superintendent of Schools opens up the opportunity to do meaningful work in a supportive environment with skillful professionals to provide high-quality educational programs for all students in Tuolumne County.
Tuolumne Learning Center (TLC)
The Tuolumne County Superintendent of Schools operates the Tuolumne Learning Center (TLC) alternative education program. This community school includes both a middle school and a high school. TLC provides a comprehensive instructional program for district, SARB, and probation-referred students. TLC is accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) and provides students with curriculum, instruction, and assessment to ensure that students graduate from high school well prepared for college and careers.
Our program includes California standards-based core curriculum and instruction, credit recovery classes, physical education, and elective classes designed to help students develop their career goals and interests. Students are offered UC A-G courses, have opportunities to enroll in Career Technical Education courses, and take dual enrollment courses at Columbia College.
Our goal is to provide each student with a safe, supportive learning environment that enhances self-esteem and strengthens academic and social skills. The TLC staff use a trauma-informed approach with high-impact classroom strategies and routines, such as Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS), and restorative practices. A full-time site-based therapist uses Mindfulness, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Substance Abuse Brief Intervention, and The Nurtured Heart Approach, in one-on-one, and group settings. Students at TLC feel engaged, connected, and have a sense of safety in school.
