We measure and improve the climate for learning in schools.

The National School Climate Center promotes safe, supportive learning environments that nurture social and emotional, civic, and academic growth for all students.

 

Bullying Prevention

Bullying is one of the most common findings that emerges from our Comprehensive School Climate Inventory (CSCI) survey data. Students report feeling less socially and physically safe than adults realize. NSCC offers a wide array of services to support school, district, and state educators in addressing bias and bullying to promote a community of upstanders. Whether you are looking to launch a school-wide campaign using free resources, access self-paced tools, hold professional development sessions, or implement a long-term anti-bullying initiative, NSCC can provide the support that youth and adults need to create safe and supportive school communities.

The CSCI is one of the nation's most scientifically sound surveys with proven reliability and validity; the data captured through the CSCI conveys how students, parents/ guardians, and school personnel perceive a school's particular climate for learning in a robust, user-friendly report.
