How do we build a positive school climate?

The recent increase in school shootings, including Parkland, has put school safety on everybody’s mind.  School violence, unfortunately, has also been an issue that hits close to home in Westchester County.  Earlier this year, a 16- year old girl was stabbed and killed by a peer at a Dunkin’ Donuts in New Rochelle. A mere seven days later, another student received nonfatal stab wounds in a classroom at New Rochelle High School.

In the wake of national, and local, violence at our schools, Westchester Children’s Association looks at the data on its Children by the Numbers blog.
