it s all about the culture
IT’S ALL ABOUT THE CULTURE!
  • Culture is defined as our beliefs, practices, behaviors, and norms of our organization.
  • This is where many school leaders and reformers fear to tread…BUT…it IS the place that holds the biggest keys to unlocking the potential of all our schools.
  • Building, nurturing, and sustaining a positive, collaborative culture…focused on LEARNING for ALL members of the school community…is THE most important job for LEADERS in any school.
slide4

CULTURE…

IT IS A POWERFUL FORCE!

Culture…NO WHERE ELSE will impact significant change!

If the fish in your aquarium are not as healthy as they should be . . .

Don’t blame the fish! Instead, consider changing the water.

---Kent Peterson

CULTURE!

slide6

HALLMARKS OF A TOXIC SCHOOL CULTURE

  • Staff does NOTbelieve in the ability of ALLstudents to learn and succeed.
  • They articulate the belief in overt ways that student success is based on the students’ level of concern, attentiveness, prior knowledge, and willingness to COMPLY!
  • HALLMARKS OF A POSITIVE SCHOOL CULTURE
  • The staff REALLY DOES BELIEVE thatALL children can learn because of what the staff does.
  • The staff creates policies and procedures and adopt practices that support their belief in the ability of every student. For example:
  • ZAP
  • PYRAMID OF INTERVENTIONS DURING THE SCHOOL DAY
  • RE-TAKES AND RE-DO’S
  • BYOT
  • GRADES THAT REFLECT LEARNING
  • ACE REWARDS CARDS/4.0
  • CELEBRATING SUCCESSES
  • There is a set of values that supports professional development, a sense of responsibility for student learning, and a positive, caring atmosphere.
  • ---Peterson, Is Your School Culture Toxic or Positive? 2002
slide7

GUIDING THE CULTURE OF THE SCHOOL….

  • ….is one of the most important things that a principal has to do.
  • Unfortunately, it's also the most difficult. Many principals are stuck by the question, 'How do I get from where I am to where I want the school to be?'
slide9
IN THE BEGINNING…THE ONLY THING WE HAD IN COMMON WAS OUR STAFF PARKING LOT AND THE TEXTBOOKS WE USED.
slide10
OUR CULTURE WAS BASED ON THE BELIEF THAT THESE ARE MY KIDS, THIS IS MY CLASSROOM, AND I AM THE RULER OF MY KINGDOM!
just leave me alone and let me teach
Just leave me alone and let me teach!

SO, WE ASKED OURSELVES THIS QUESTION:

WHAT ARE THE CONSEQUENCES OF TEACHER ISOLATION IN OUR SCHOOL?

slide13

We made a

commitment to reading professional literature every SUMMER… and Teams led discussions and professional learning activities throughout the next year.

the opms turning point we needed to change our mental model of the purpose of school
THE OPMS TURNING POINT…WE NEEDED TO CHANGE OUR MENTAL MODEL OF THE PURPOSE OF “SCHOOL”

STRUCTURE!

wins every time….

… ALWAYS!

When you change the “water” (environment) AND the structure, you change the people.

---B. Fuller (with slight adaptation by Linda Solis)

structural and cultural changes we ve made supported by collective commitments

Teamwork is the ultimate competitive advantage and it is powerful but rare. If you could get all the people in an organization rowing in the same direction, you could dominate any industry, in any market, against any competitor, at any time.---Patrick Lencioni

MONTHLY S.T.A.R.S. COLLABORATIONSSchool Teams Achieving Results for Students

FOCUS ON OUR CONTINUOUS PROFESSIONAL LEARNING:

The premise of PLCs is that “adult learning precedes student learning.”Teachers and other staff members learn together so that we can assist students in their learning. Teaching quality is increased by continuous professional learning---the heart, soul, and rationale for the creation and maintenance of the PLC.---R. DuFour

(Table toppers and norms!)

MONTHLY VERTICAL TEAM COLLABORATIONS

FOCUS ON OUR STUDENTS CONTINUED GROWTH AND LEARNING

  • THE HOPE FOR THE FUTURE: THE INCREDIBLE POWER OF A WONDERFUL TEACHER
  • If students are under-resourced, does that doom them for life? Not if they’re lucky to have a couple of good teachers.
