Review for National School Climate Center, New York, NY, USA
I have had the opportunity to work with the NSCC twice in the last four years. The first, I was asked to be part of a pilot program through the Minnesota Department of Education in which I was training as a School Climate Leader. During that year I was able to work side by side with the staff at NSCC and found them to be knowledgeable, honest, trustworthy and empathetic. They were able to help all of us in the co-hort become better representatives for students.
The second time I have worked with them was during this last school year. Our district was working on a new strategic plan, and were struggling to find the right measurements for social/ emotional learning, particularly for students, parents and staff. I suggested we look at NSCC and the Comprehensive School Climate Inventory. We used the CSCI with all buildings last spring and look to do so again this year. It is a wealth of data that will help us move forward in these important areas. Once again, the staff was amazing to work with on this project. I cannot recommend them enough.
