Walk-Through Toolkit for Schools: What does it mean to be a “Welcoming School”?
This toolkit covers four components of a welcoming school atmosphere. By assessing a school’s atmosphere in these critical areas, schools can develop plans to meet the needs of their school communities and improve their environments, thus creating a foundation for increasing family and community engagement.
- Physical Environment
- Practices and Policies
- Personal Interaction
- Written Materials and Communications
“Working with others that are also invested in the success of the school, buildings can receive input that can be used towards creating a more welcoming environment.”
This work was prepared by Kim Moritz from the Ohio Department of Education’s State Support Team Region 6 on September 6, 2018.
