Helping schools to create and maintain a safe, orderly and supportive school environment for students is the mission of the Office of Safety and Youth Development. School safety, climate and culture have a profound effect on students' academic achievement and behavior. To support students in their academic and social growth and promote positive school climate and culture, OSYD works with CFN Clusters and Networks and directly with schools to establish and implement integrated safety, discipline and intervention policies and procedures, promote respect for diversity and take a proactive role in nurturing students' pro-social behavior by providing students with meaningful opportunities for social emotional learning.
