Climate and Discipline

The goal of the school climate and discipline program is to promote necessary components of a healthy school climate; to support learning and contribute to students’ health by minimizing distractions; physical, psychological, and social hazards; creating a climate in which students and school staff do their best work; expecting that all students can succeed; and implementing supporting policies. This goal is accomplished by having in place collaborative relationships, an effective evaluation process, technical assistance and resources to ensure that schools are designed to provide a safe, healthy, and supportive environment that fosters learning.
