    The Cleveland Alliance for School Climate Research (CASCR) is funded by the U.S. Department of Education, Institute of Education Sciences to help Cleveland Metropolitan School District (CMSD) gain new knowledge about the climate of its secondary schools, specifically how secondary school climate is associated with student education outcomes and how students of different subgroups experience school climate differently; to help district staff develop capacity to understand and use research to inform programming; and to build a long-term research partnership between CMSD, the Center for Urban Education at Cleveland State University, and the American Institutes for Research (AIR). This project began in July, 2017.
