A Caring School Community

The caring school community is designed to help students become caring, responsible members of their school communities and, ultimately, to grow into humane, principled, and skilled citizens of a democratic society. It does so by: *Building caring relationships with and among students; *Directly teaching social skills; *Creating calm, orderly learning environments through the use of effective classroom management practices; and... *Helping students acquire self-discipline through a caring and effective approach to discipline.
