The Safe School Climate Plan was developed by the Board of Education Policy Subcommittee in response to Public Act 11-232, and was approved on December 5, 2011. The Clinton Board of Education is committed to creating and maintaining an educational environment free from bullying, harassment, and discrimination. In order to foster an atmosphere conducive to learning, the Board has developed this plan, consistent with state law and Board Policy. This Plan represents a comprehensive approach to establishing positive school climate and building the quality and character of school life, with a particular focus on the quality of the relationships within the school community between and among students and adults. It also outlines a process to address bullying and cyberbullying and sets forth the Board’s expectations for preventing, intervening, and responding to incidents of bullying.
The Safe School Climate Plan Handbook is intended to outline and further explain key components of the policy and regulation. Please feel free to contact Maryann O'Donnell, Safe School Climate Coordinator, for questions or assistance.
