2013 –14 Burnside Elementary Classroom and Building Climate
At Burnside School, our goal is to create a safe,caring and inclusive learning environment where children are able to take risks and discover the joy in learning.
To make this goal a reality we have many proactive practices to guide our children’s social and behavioral learning. The foundation for this learning is rooted in the “Responsive Classroom” approach to teaching and learning. This foundation is then supported by “The Learner’s Way”, the “Burnside Terrific 22”, and Burnside Climate Interventions.
Our practices also consistent with recommendations contained in the ”Safe and Supportive Minnesota Schools” report developed by the 2012 Governor’s Task Force on the Prevention of School Bullying. In that report, the authors note:
