How one AASA Learning 2025 Demonstration System is Taking Action to Provide Increased Social and Emotional Support
San Ramon Valley Unified School District Case Study

AASA Learning 2025 Demonstration Systems are creating student-centered, equity­-focused, and future-driven educational systems that serve ALL learners.

Located in the San Francisco Bay Area, San Ramon ValleyUnified School District (SRVUSD) stands among the highest- achieving school districts in California.

While the district has a strong foundation of academic excellence, it recognizes that many students still need support for their social and emotional well-being. Some learners find it challenging to handle the stress associated with the community’s high expectations.

By focusing on the intersection of deep learning, social emotional well-being and equity, the district’s goal is to support staff in understanding the importance of addressing the needs of the whole learner (including social-emotional, physical, cognitive, and academic growth and development) to better serve the learner.
