Students are safe and supported in their academic, social, and emotional growth. 

Unpacking the Commitment

Schools support the academic, social and emotional safety and well-being of all students. Therefore, learning environments are safe and nurturing. Staff create an environment of respect and rapport to encourage and cultivate respectful interactions in the classroom. In a respectful environment, all students feel valued and safe. Building and maintaining a safe and supportive learning environment is a system-wide commitment.
