Climate Change Everyone Can Support (session #231)
The research is clear and common sense has been confirmed – school climate matters. The National School Climate Council has translated the body of school climate research into actionable steps and National School Climate Standards. The standards present a vision and framework for a positive and sustainable school climate, which is necessary for student achievement, success and the reduction of risk behaviors in students. Policy transforms any school’s climate through measurable, meaningful, and memorable objectives and benchmarks that staff, parents, youth and adults can focus upon to give all kids what they need to succeed. We will showcase real school climates that foster achievement, character development, and safety for students, school staff and the neighborhood. You will walk away with a research-based story that unites the competing programs, professional tracks and funding mechanisms to a central goal – doing what is best for children and youth.
