SAFE AND WELCOMING SCHOOLS.
Students, parents, educators and community members of all cultural and economic backgrounds should feel safe, welcome, respected and valued.
- Safety and security. Staff- from teachers to bus drivers- should ensure students feel safe, accepted and part of a community. Discipline practices should be research based and proactive, focusing on relationship building, shared problem solving and keeping students in the classroom
- Community Involvement. Parents and residents have opportunities for active school involvement and bilingual communication, where appropriate.
- Administration-staff relations. Respect and collaboration between administration and staff is important to build a strong and healthy school climate.
