Empowering Staff for Success: Mindsets, Tools, and Strategies for a Positive School Culture

* Includes in-person software training for staff


Whole Staff (including Leadership Team)


Is your staff ready for the transformation? During this session, leaders and teachers in your building will be empowered as the agents of change necessary to achieve a positive school culture. A Kickboard coach will first lead staff to explore mindsets critical for success. Staff will learn the software tools that will help them reinforce positive choices with students and be guided through a group norming process to ensure consistency in behavior capture. They will also learn strategies and gain resources for defining and explicitly teaching behaviors with children.

Challenges Addressed

  • Low teacher buy-in
  • Punitive mindsets or mixed beliefs about how to motivate students
  • Widespread assumptions among adults that children should just know how to behave without being taught
  • Wide variance in reasons for office referrals
  • Inconsistency of behavior expectations across classrooms

Program Outcomes

  • Increased teacher buy-in and investment for improving school culture
  • Tools for continued mindset reflection
  • Ability to use the Kickboard software to capture behaviors
  • Clear definition of behaviors for both teachers and students
  • Schoolwide consistency of behavior expectations
  • Lesson framework and examples for teaching children behavior skills
  • Consistent process across classrooms for narrating and reinforcing behavior

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.
