S-CCATE (The School- Compassionate Culture Analytic Tool for Educators) is appropriate for K-8 schools and the validation study will be conducted with schools that offer services to at least one of these grades. The S-CCATE is based on a scientific review of the research and input from teams of principals and teacher leaders over a 7-year time period. It should take teachers 12- 15 minutes to complete.  Click here to begin the survey Principals, please forward to your teachers to respond.

Prizes for Participation: Teachers can chose to enter a drawing for $50 Amazon gift cards - 10 cards will be awarded to teachers who respond by December 18.


S-CCATE is completed online in google docs.  Participation is voluntary and schools/teachers may discontinue participation at any time. All data will be coded, teacher confidentiality is assured, and reports will be in the aggregate. If schools or teachers have questions regarding confidentiality and privacy please contact Dr. Christine Mason at, 571-213-3192.


All participating schools/districts will receive a report of the results and the instrument, when validated, could become an important tool for furthering improvements in classroom and school climate and better preparing students for academic instruction.

Thank you for supporting our efforts to help increase mindfulness and compassion in schools to further well-being, reduce stress, and accelerate academic learning.
