Theory of Action about School Climate Work - Alt Text

  • If we create welcoming, safe and supportive school environments that support the whole child by:
    • Utilizing prevention science at the universal or Tier 1 level to meet the social, emotional, and mental health needs of students
    • Expanding the ability of educators to support and address the social and emotional needs of students and themselves
    • Fostering positive relationships between all members of the school community.
    • Examining disparities and designing equitable strategies to address those disparities
  • Then we will see:
    • An increase in student sense of belonging to the school community. An increase in sense of belonging will result in the following:
      • Increased attendance
      • Decreased behavioral challenges
      • Increased student engagement
      • Increased academic outcomes
      • Decreased harmful behaviors by students (i.e., substance use; suicide ideation and attempt; bullying).
      • Increased student SEL/wellness
