Educators often question the compatibility and wonder whether it’s possible to integrate and implement multiple school climate initiatives simultaneously.

We provide answers to these questions by presenting a step-by-step process for utilizing a simple, but comprehensive visual map that categorizes the core features of school climate as a system with multiple moving parts that influence one another.

We partner with educational institutions to show how this visual map serves as both a general guide for implementation of restorative practices, as well as a tool for integrating multiple climate initiates, such as Positive Behavioral Interventions & Supports, trauma engaged care and practice, racial equity, social emotional learning, mindfulness

(and others) providing a structure and clear direction for one seamless and sustainable rollout effort over time.
