Written by Karen Gellender Friday, 07 October 2011 00:00
While many topics were discussed, as per usual, at the most recent Plainview-Old Bethpage Central School District Board of Education meeting on Monday, Oct. 3, the main focus of the evening was the results of the district’s school climate survey. Developed by the National School Climate Center (NSCC), the survey evaluated the perceptions of district students, teachers and parents in twelve areas, including Rules and Norms, Sense of Social and Emotional Security, and Respect for Diversity.

After much discussion last year, the survey was administered as part of a plan to improve the school climate, in part due to concerns about bullying within the district, and in part due to the need to make changes in accordance with the requirements of DASA (Dignity For All Students Act), enacted by the state legislature in 2010.
