Welcome to the Office of School Climate
The mission of the Office of School Climate is to develop and implement comprehensive school-wide strategies to promote positive school climate and to address social, emotional, and behavioral barriers to learning. It is our goal to establish and maintain collaborative working relationships with school personnel, students and their families, and community stakeholders in order to form partnerships and service plans to meet the needs of all students and their families.
We are very excited about the upcoming 2016-2017 school year and we look forward to working with all faculty, students, and Richmond County stakeholders. Student learning is our top priority!
