School Climate

​​​​​We recognize that students learn best in schools with positive climates, where people are engaged and respected. Simply put, if a child is not physically and mentally in attendance, learning cannot take place. T​o learn more about the importance of school climate and evidence-based solutions (e.g. PBIS​) to improve climate please visit: School Climate.​​​   ​
