All LPS schools provide Social and Emotional Learning through programs like Second Step, Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports, In Focus, and other activities.   If you have questions about Social and Emotional Learning here at Franklin Elementary, please contact Leslie Dominick @ 303-347-4500 3 min video explaining social and emotional Learning https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ikehX9o1JbI
