"Stronger Teams Meeting Students' Needs"

Comprehensive Culture and Climate Reform Program

Research has shown that a positive school climate can increase staff morale and retention, decrease referrals and violence and increase academic achievement. Positive interpersonal relationships and social interactions create an environment of safety, trust and mutual respect setting the tone for effective teaching and learning.


Ask yourself:

How would I describe the culture and climate at my school?

What are the core beliefs reflected in my culture?

What changes need to be made to create an environment that promotes a positive school climate meeting the social and emotional health of all students?
