School Climate Assessment Programs. Technical Assistance Bulletin 38.
National School Resource Network, Washington, DC.
Numerous studies indicate that climate, the prevailing "feeling" of the environment, not only contributes to behavioral and situational outcomes, but that climate can be changed to help bring about the behaviors and outcomes desired. Researchers have identified characteristics of positive school climates and ways of determining the presence or absence of such climate enhancers in the school environment. This bulletin explores ways of assessing school climate. Seven source documents are included that provide examples of school climate assessment instruments and strategies for change. (Author/MLF)
