Creating Culture Walkthrough Rubric

Audience

Culture Leadership Team

Overview

Improving school culture requires incorporating systems to explicitly check which areas are showing progress and which need more attention. Kickboard will work side-by-side with leaders to create a rubric for measuring school culture and an aligned walkthrough tool. The session will also include an action plan for testing and calibrating the rubric.

Challenges Addressed

  • Schoolwide inconsistency of culture
  • Lack of clear expectation for culture excellence
  • Absence of culture observation tool

Program Outcomes

  • Culture Rubric
  • Protocol for culture observations using the rubric

Format

Two 1-Hour Planning Meetings (Virtual) +

Kickboard has made a huge difference. We reduced disciplines by 44% in just 18 weeks. If I go to another campus and come back to ours, I can see and hear the difference. It’s so positive here and that’s changing the culture of our school. This not only improves students’ behavior but it improves their academic performance as well.
