Turnaround for Children’s Well-Being Index was noted in the UCLA Center for the Transformation of Schools report, “Beyond the Schoolhouse: Digging Deeper.”

This report explores the social, health and environmental factors that impact outcomes for Black students in Los Angeles County.

The report outlines concrete in and out of school policies that can be applied to improve outcomes for Black students.

One recommendation involves creating healthy, positive learning environments where Black students feel safe, and regularly assessing and responding to their social, emotional and physical needs with the help of tools like Turnaround’s Well-Being Index.
