Students in Boston Public Schools are taking part in Open Circle, which empowers them to promote positive behaviors and healthy relationships at school and in their community. During Open Circle time, students are able to address differences and resolve issues, improve friendships, and create a strong sense of community. Students who take part in the program can resolve conflicts and manage their emotions better – ultimately cutting down on the number of classroom disruptions and freeing up more time for learning. A grant from Partners HealthCare is funding this program.
