Whole Child Focus

  • Spokane Public Schools believes that successful schools focus on educating the whole child. To truly launch a Whole Child Focus program, schools, families, and the community must partner to support and nurture the three aspects of a student's development: basic needs, social emotional learning, and academic growth

Whole child focus includes: 4 attributes of successful schools: foster academic behaviors, create an environment of learning, provide academic press and promote a culture of success; 3 aspects: basic needs, social emotional and academic; 3 partners: SPS staff, student's family and community.
