Common VIEW

The Common Vision for Improved Education and Wellness (Common VIEW) is a collaborative of nine partners working together in the Clearview and Midview school districts to improve health, knowledge, develop communication and life skills, and create school environments in which risky behaviors are avoided.

The goal of the collaborative is to ensure safer schools and positive social environments that improve both educational and social outcomes for students in the districts.

Common VIEW provides wrap-around services within school buildings that address the connection between healthy behaviors and academic achievement.
