Defining your culture so school is not just a building. Create a place where students have deep connections and want to be.

Join educators from all levels in K-12 as we explore and develop strategies for you to re-create school culture that best fits your community.  Opportunities to attend morning breakout sessions and focus groups will be combined with the overall goal of taking home tools and ideas you can apply right away to continue your school’s journey toward a positive student-centered culture.

Culture What?  Begin the quest to unlock the secrets of school culture, explore and define your personal and school impression of culture, and how to move it in a positive direction. We will begin the day with a large group interactive session focusing on the perceptions and realities of school culture.
