The Why and How of a Positive School Climate

These are challenging times for K–12 districts. With rising concerns about mental health, school violence, the upheaval of COVID-19, and increasing politicization of education, maintaining a positive school climate has never been more challenging — or more essential.  

Without a positive school climate, K–12 schools face a host of challenges, including a higher risk of teacher turnover and poorer student outcomes. Times of crisis — such as a pandemic or traumatic school violence — can have a detrimental impact on the school environment, with students facing a greater risk of negative emotional responses that can interfere with both their learning and their daily lives. But, by assessing the social-emotional well-being and mental health of students, staff, and families, districts can better foster feelings of safety, connection, engagement, and, ultimately, success.  

Our infographic, The Why and How of a Positive School Climate, can help districts assess their current state and identify how to improve it, including by conducting a school climate survey.
