“The goal of the 'Ascension Through Diversity Project' is to unify and develop a prevention and early intervention system that is comprehensive and equitable; one that addresses barriers to learning and teaching, designed to positively impact all students. Effectively implemented with integrity, the project will (1) Increase students' contribution to the well-being of the community, (2) Improve classroom climate schoolwide and (3) Support socially-appropriate problem-solving skills amongst their peers. The overarching intent is to improve the environment of our schools while establishing a welcoming and supportive climate where our schools are perceived as prevention-centric, focused on accommodating diversity, promoting social and psychological wellness and assuring equity of opportunity, enabling all students to succeed at school.”
