Workshop Summary:

Positive and healthy school cultures and climates are the foundations of high-quality learning environments.

The reform efforts of the last 30 years have failed to improve student achievement in schools because they failed to adequately address the importance of the culture and climate of schools.

It's time to recreate the conditions for effective teaching and learning to occur.

Studies show that happiness and well-being are closely correlated with productivity and performance. This means that as educators, it is our responsibility to invest in both our employees' and students’ academic and personal development.

A blueprint for positive change in our schools.

Build the essential traits of a positive school climate.

School climate is the feel of the school (the school's attitude), the behaviors and points of view exhibited and experienced by students, teachers, and other stakeholders.

Create a culture infused with positivity.

School culture is the way things are done in the school (the personality of a school), the underlying norms and values that shape patterns of behavior, attitudes, and expectations between stakeholders in the school.

Produce better results and elevate levels of performance.

When we focus on wellbeing, belief systems, and meaningful change within our organizations, we begin to see increased results. Employees' brains at positive create a ripple effect felt across the school.

Intentionally focus on positive mindsets.

We can choose to continue to feel powerless or we can begin to change mindsets to get extraordinary results within our organizations and with our employees and students. When everyone feels better, students and employees perform at high levels.

In this full-day virtual live workshop, you and your staff will learn:

Explore why climate matters

Strong school climates are characterized by supportive leadership, teacher collaboration, high expectations for students, and a collective commitment to support student learning.

Build a culture that respects teachers, supports students, and reduces stress

Schools must invest in practices that provide emotional support to teachers and students to feel good and manage the workload and the stress.

How to implement and maximize the provided Culture and Climate resources

We'll guide you through our culture and climate resources and give you practical ways to implement the provided ideas, tools, and activities in your school and classrooms.
