Whole School, Whole Community, Whole Child
Launched in 2007, ASCD’s Whole Child Initiative is an effort to change the conversation about education from
a focus on narrowly defined academic achievement to one that promotes the long-term development and success of
children. Through the initiative, ASCD helps educators, families, community members, and policymakers move from
a vision about educating the whole child to sustainable, collaborative action. ASCD is joined in this effort by Whole
Child Partner organizations representing the education, arts, health, policy, and community sectors. Learn more at
