Second Step

What Resources Do We Use?

Second Step is the core curriculum Arlington Public Schools uses to support students’ personal and social development through bi-weekly classroom lessons with our school counselors.  Families are encouraged to support our lessons with Home Links – worksheets to be sent home by the counseling team following a specific lesson to continue the conversation on the topics or skills introduced.
