As you work on the document, and as you come together to finalize your community agreement, take a few moments to reflect on these questions:

  • What do you think are the benefits of establishing a written community agreement?
  • What could be the benefits of regularly reviewing your community agreement? How often?
  • What situations (both current and potential) in your community might be helped by having a community agreement?
  • What’s going to help us work well together?
  • How do we want to treat one another in this space?
  • What would make this community a good space for learning?
