For Educators: Join the Caring Schools Network in Spring 2019

“We knew we were having an impact when we started to see groups of students going out of their way to better the lives of others, in dramatic, impactful ways, and then letting us know about what they did.” —Caring Schools Network participant

Using Making Caring Common’s School Culture and Climate Surveys, schools in the Caring Schools Network collect data related to:

  • School values

  • Safety

  • Bullying, discrimination, and harassment

  • Student and adult relationships

  • Rules and expectations

Schools then work with our team to use data and light-lift strategies to improve school culture and climate and to build key skills in students over the course of a semester or academic year.

We hope you'll join us in spring 2019!
