Chinese Immersion School at De Avila

Caring School Community

The Caring School Community (CSC) program is a nationally recognized, research-based K-6 program that builds classroom and schoolwide community. The 3 core values are that students have a sense of belonging, a sense of autonomy and a sense of competence.

We use CSC at our school to build community not only amongst the students, but the staff and parents as well.

A sample of facilitation questions that help connect student’s conversations:

  • Who can say more about that?
  • What would you like to add to what ___said?
  • I agree with …because
  • Can you say  more about that?
