September 25, 2018

The Open Society Institute has awarded the School's Social Work Community Outreach Service $100,000 to help support its Positive Schools Center’s School Climate Change Framework.


The Positive Schools Center’s School Climate Change Framework focuses on five pillars of school climate: leadership, positive relationships, teaching and learning, environment, and safety, along with the five foundational components: trauma-responsive educational practices; restorative & healing practices; racial justice; social-emotional character development; and developing student, family, and community voice. The project will focus on restorative and healing practices, provide an online hub to strengthen school teams cohesiveness, and build capacity through connecting schools.  This project will allow the Positive Schools Center to collaborate with Baltimore City Schools and Maryland State Department of Education.
