Caring School Climate:

Definition: School environment and teachers provide a caring climate. Resources are distributed fairly in the school. Students and staff feel cared for and appreciated in the school. Health, active living and positive social behavior are promoted by students and staff.

How do we see that the school is a caring climate? How do we know if a student cares about their school? What do people do/say when they care? How do we build safety or caring in the classroom? In the school?

Aggregate survey results: 76% of the students at Discovering Choices perceive that school provides a caring climate.
