dc.description.abstract This study measures the impact of the Community of Caring Program implemented at Holy Cross School in Calgary, Alberta, during the 199912000 school year. Impact was assessed by comparing records on the number of reported violent incidents, the truancy rate, student grade point averages, and the number of reported nonviolent discipline incidents at the end of the 1998/1999 school year and the end ofthe 199912000 school year. The study also investigates whether, and to what degree 224 students in grades 7, 8, and 9 perceived an increase in staff and student behaviors which facilitate a positive school climate. These behaviors include mutual respect, courtesy, academic pursuit, safety, accountability, cooperation, communication, sense of community, meeting the needs of the students, and acknowledgment of effort over the course of the school year. Students were asked to complete a survey twice during the 1999/2000 school year; once in February and again near the end ofthe school term in June. The data collection tool is a five point Likert-type scale. Results indicate that while the number of discipline referrals was significantly decreased, all measures of student perceptions of others behaviors indicated either a lack of improvement or an increase in negative behaviors. en
