School Climate Resources

Learning for Justice receives an alarming number of reports about hate and bias incidents in schools. In response, we created a package of our most-requested school climate materials. The package contains tools, protocols and practical advice for making your school more open and welcoming to all students. Like all of our materials, these resources are FREE to download, print and use in your school. Each has an on-demand professional development webinar.
