This session provided detailed guidance for management and design of structures of support to address school climate. Based on the latest evidence in the field, participants explored all aspects of promoting healthy school climate, such as a three tiered model of promotion, prevention, and intervention. Content included establishing internal structure for referrals, triage, support systems and interventions (individual and group) and routine review of student progress. Particular attention was paid to how such efforts positively impact student achievement and behavioral outcomes.

As a result of participating in this session, participants will be able to: describe proven strategies for instituting and sustaining a Climate Team; identify specific “next steps” for implementation in their own setting; and identify methods to engender support of and participation in such an effort.
