It is important to work in an environment where you, your students, and their families feel safe and welcome. As an educator, you can focus on celebrating school-wide and student achievements, implement skill-building programs outside of traditional classroom subjects, and ensure physical environments like classrooms, cafeterias, and hallways are safe. Creating a positive culture and encouraging parent engagement can have a positive impact on a student’s performance in school. It can also increase trust and school connectedness among parents and the school. Explore our materials on promoting school climate below.
