Resources for School Climate and Culture

A positive school climate is the product of a school’s attention to fostering safety; promoting a supportive academic, disciplinary, and physical environment; and encouraging and maintaining respectful, trusting, and caring relationships throughout the school community no matter the setting —from pre-K/elementary school to higher education. A positive school climate is critically related to school success. For example, it can improve attendance, achievement, and retention and even rates of graduation.

School Climate Resources from GPB and GaDOE

The Georgia Department of Education has partnered with Georgia Public Broadcasting to provide digital learning plans, videos, and podcasts.

Created by content specialists, the digital lesson plans are easy-to-use and include both “plugged and unplugged” activities.

Georgia teachers have recorded Let's Learn GA! model lessons and instructional support videos that are great for students, teachers, and parents.

Classroom Conversations are podcasts that feature Georgia educators who are teaching and reaching students in innovative and impactful ways.
