Reaching Out to Schools

The children we serve are influenced and affected by many aspects of their lives. But while we make sure to gather a variety of important information about the families and home environments of the children we serve, we can overlook gathering important information about the school environment. Children spend a considerable amount of time in school, and what happens at school influences their attitudes and behavior during your program. So it is just as important to be informed about the school’s overall climate and culture, as it is to be about the environment in the home.
