School Culture Audit and Recommendations

Audience

Principal and Leadership Team

Overview

School leaders are often faced with the challenge of spending all their time on misbehavior. A “revolving door” of office referrals steals time from other critical, more proactive work. Kickboard Coaches will study your current Tier I schoolwide behavior support systems by conducting staff and student interviews, observing existing school culture practices, analyzing results of a leadership self-assessment, and reviewing current culture data. You will then receive actionable recommendations for improvement based on this audit of your Tier I culture systems.

Challenges Addressed

  • Teacher and administration losing time on discipline
  • Any proactive improvement planning that is done addresses only academics 
  • Teachers have adopted a punitive mindset 
  • Different teachers have different behavior expectations creating inconsistency across the school
  • A large number of interventions for struggling students
  • A lack of schoolwide positive support systems

Program Outcomes

  • A comprehensive report of current systems and written recommendations for improving and progress monitoring Tier I culture systems
  • Leadership Self Assessment survey results for continued areas of improvement

Format

Two 1-Hour Planning Meetings (Virtual) + 
Full-Day (6 hrs) in-person collaborative session

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.
