SDE Optimizing Conditions

ASDE surveys all SDE communities/programs about how they provide, enhance, or align with each of the Six Optimizing Conditions for young people to succeed in SDE.  Survey answers:
  1. Responsibility – Learners are advised at enrollment (as are their caregivers) that their education is their own. All are on the same page in this regard in choosing to enroll in our community.
  2. Freedom – Learners’ time is their own to do as they wish while visiting our community space.
  3. Access to Tools – Our space offers use of many materials to create in classroom settings, in the kitchen, and outdoors.
  4. Nonjudgmental Support – There are two lead facilitators plus some caregivers of learners who participate with our community. All are expected to support the learners in the chosen activities of the day.
  5. Age Mixing – All ages (6-12 plus younger siblings) are part of the same group of learners and the same community.
  6. Healthy Community – We all work together to support our community of learners and encourage use of NVC for conflict resolution.
