Guiding Principle #1, Climate and Prevention
The National Center on Safe and Supportive Learning Environment hosted a webinar on February 27, 2014 that provided an in-depth review of Guiding Principle #1 as outlined within the Guiding Principles: A Resource Guide for Improving School Climate and Discipline, a key document in the recently released School Discipline Guidance Package. In particular, it walked through each Action Step identified for Principle #1 implementation, including exploring how each are being implemented by an expert panel of practitioners. These content experts brought deep knowledge of the practical realities associated with integrating Principle #1 strategies into current practice.
The Webinar also included a "tracking guide" that allowed participants to complete a short self-assessment aligned with the Action Steps of Guiding Principle #1 and a list of related resources to support effective implementation.
