School climate and culture is frequently talked about, universally desired and often mandated by school boards, districts and authorizing agencies. But seldom does anyone provide the specific “how to” guidance that educators and leaders can use to design and implement a genuinely transformational culture.
Monarch Academy Public Charter School built a transformative school culture through strategic choices, thoughtful reflection and the use of specific leadership tools. This powerful culture has produced an exemplary learning environment that cultivates success for all students and staff. This unique immersion experience provides two full days of active learning and engaging with the leaders and students of this amazing school.
Participants in this experience will be empowered to make strategic shifts in their own practice and equipped to design, implement and maintain a transformative school culture. You can “kick-the-tires” by seeing these practices at work in real time in a real school day. You can ask questions, interview staff, students and parents and watch “philosophy” become reality right before your eyes. At Monarch Academy, culture is a real, observable and practical catalyst for powerful, enduring and positive change. Don’t miss this special opportunity to learn how to build a transformational culture in your school!
