Caring Schools Network

Make your school a Caring School.

*Please note that we will not be running the Caring Schools Network during 2017/2018 as we undergo a planning year. Schools are welcome to continue using our school resources for promoting caring and respect, including our Toolkit for Educators. Schools also may partner with Making Caring Common through other initiatives, including the Caring Schools #CommonGood Campaign our Youth Advisory Board and the KIND Schools Challenge. We may run our Caring Schools survey in the spring of 2018.

If your school is interested in participating in the survey or being added to the 2018/2019 waitlist, please email Glenn Manning (

We look forward to continuing our partnerships in 2018!

- The Making Caring Common team









Through a unique partnership with Making Caring Common, the Caring Schools Network builds caring, inclusive school communities where students feel safe, supported, and connected. In these school communities, students can grow academically, build healthy relationships, develop key social and emotional skills, be engaged with their communities, and feel responsible to others.

The Caring Schools Network uses data to better understand how students, staff, and parents experience their school community; have access to a library of low-burden research-based strategies that promote children’s social and emotional learning, increase caring and connectedness and reduce problem behaviors; and benefit from the knowledge and insight of leaders in the field.
