Community Care Overview
The Whole School, Whole Community, Whole Child (WSCC) model is an effort to provide a healthy, safe, engaging, supportive, and challenging environment for our students, families and staff. The office of Community Care was developed to support the WSCC initiative while also supporting the social and emotional needs of D49 staff. The office of Community Care’s mission is to support the social/emotional needs of students, staff and the community.
Students- Social/emotional Learning (SEL) is a large portion of the work of Community Care. By helping schools develop initiatives that encourage social/emotional learning by addressing the social/emotional standards set by CDE, we hope to better prepare our students with 21st Century skills that will last a life time.
Staff- Supported and cared for staff are the backbone of District 49. Community Care advocates for staff needs that promote a healthy work environment. Our goal is to make District 49 the best place to learn, work and lead.
Community- By working with the community, we hope to create a supported environment for students, staff and families. Community Care is dedicated to supporting families and working with community members to encourage community engagement in District 49.
