Creating Safe, Equitable, Engaging Schools brings together the collective wisdom of more than thirty experts from a variety of fields to show how school leaders can create communities that support the social, emotional, and academic needs of all students. It offers an essential guide for making sense of the myriad evidence‐based frameworks, resources, and tools available to create a continuous improvement system.


Creating Safe, Equitable, Engaging Schools is an essential read for teachers, principals, district leaders, and organizations that work with schools to create challenging and supportive environments for all students. — Paul Cruz, superintendent, Austin Independent School District

Osher and colleagues not only connect the dots between big ideas—deeper learning, trauma, social and emotional learning, evidence-based programs, comprehensive community planning—but they model the continuous improvement approach in the way ideas are ordered across and within the chapters. This is a masterful volume: comprehensive, accessible, and way overdue. — Karen J. Pittman, cofounder, president and CEO, The Forum for Youth Investment

This book provides a very usable road map for creating safe, healthy, equitable, and caring schools. The editors and contributors successfully integrate research, practice, and policy to help educators develop and implement effective and sustainable models to nurture caring schools that all children and educators deserve. — Mark T. Greenberg, Bennett Chair of Prevention Research, Pennsylvania State University
