Orion Jr High students make seatbelt covers

Ms Smith FACS class at Orion Jr have been making seatbelt covers for cancer patients…The idea was inspired by one of Ms. Smith students who has a friend with cancer.  The cancer patients favorite item that helped her through her treatments  was a selt beltcover for the Chemo ports.  The covers prevent the seatbelts from rubbing against the ports. The ports are very sensitive.  All covers made will be donated to local hospitals for cancer patients.

School Climate and Culture

Written by

School Climate and Equity

Equity is intrinsic to all aspects of school climate work. It is not a separate issue. The National School Climate Center defines this to be the quality and character of school life that fosters children’s, youth’s, and families’ full access to:

  1. Appropriately supported, high expectations for learning and achievement
  2. Emotionally and physically safe, healthy learning environments
  3. Caring relationships with peers and adults
  4. Participation that meaningfully enhances academic, social-emotional, civic, and moral development.

An equitable school climate responds to the wide range of cultural norms, goals, values, interpersonal relationships, leadership practices, and organizational structures within the broader community.

Schools can create more equitable communities through the following promising strategies:

  1. Encourage reflective practice and build cultural awareness in students and adults
  2. Increase understanding of diverse cultures
  3. Keep diverse schools physically and emotionally safe
  4. Make high expectations culturally responsive
  5. Design multiple pathways to meaningful participation
  6. Demonstrate caring by knowing students’ unique emotional needs

Professional Development

Written by

Professional development is the strategy schools and school districts use to ensure that educators continue to strengthen their practice throughout their career. The most effective professional development engages teams of teachers to focus on the needs of their students. They learn and problem solve together in order to ensure all students achieve success. The Equity, Justice, and Inclusion Department can help leaders with a multitude of training on various topics.
