Strategies for Improving our Culture and Climate

Family Outreach & InvolvmentStaff will establish positive and collaborative relationships with families to support student learning and growth through:

  • Determining and utilizing the best mode of communication for each student’s family.
  • Regularly sharing information about what students are collectively and individually learning and experiencing at school.
  • Actively upending the historic patterns of teacher communication reinforcing the othering and disconnection of our marginalized students.
  • Ensuring that families authentically know and understand their child’s level of mastery of grade level standards. 
  • Seeing and engaging families as partners by centering student experience and validating families’ lived experiences.

Restorative, Responsive, and Inclusive PracticesOur Culture and Climate Team will lead all-school work to: 

  • Strengthen proactive and reactive restorative practices across grade levels.
  • Implement education and inclusion related to neurodiversity and disabilities for students at all grade levels.
  • Support staff in relationship and community building.
