There is a shift in the way we implement student supports. The shift is from risk to resilience that comes from scientific, evidence-based research and data. To support educational leaders in their efforts as resiliency practitioners in the field of education and to achieve the ultimate goal of supporting the health and well-being of the whole student, we offer key components of support in resiliency and school culture. Those concerned with the well-being of the whole student have come to a consensus that schools need to incorporate as part of their structure of goals, curriculum, and instruction systematic effort to promote students' social-emotional competencies and positive character development (Blankstein, 2009, Elias, 2009) A resilient school culture can be a vehicle for the development of success for students (Henderson & Milstein, 2003).
