Bullying is one of the most common findings that emerges from our Comprehensive School Climate Inventory (CSCI) survey data. Students report feeling less socially and physically safe than adults realize. NSCC offers a wide array of services to support school, district, and state educators in addressing bias and bullying to promote a community of upstanders. Whether you are looking to launch a school-wide campaign using free resources, access self-paced tools, hold professional development sessions, or implement a long-term anti-bullying initiative, NSCC can provide the support that youth and adults need to create safe and supportive school communities.
Our Comprehensive School Climate Inventory (CSCI) supports whole school communities learning and working together to understand their school community's strengths, as well as areas for improvement.
