Columbia School District

School Climate

Connecticut has defined school climate as “the quality and character of school life with a particular focus on the quality of the relationships within the school community between and among students and adults.” The National School Climate Standards provide a vision and framework for a positive and sustainable school climate.

Through the implementation of appropriate prevention and intervention strategies, Columbia School System/Horace W. Porter School will sustain school environments where all members are welcomed, supported and feel safe in school; socially, emotionally and physically.
