Build a positive school climate to impact students, teachers, and the community!


 


Is improving school climate on your to-do list? Do you think about it as a top-down directive or as a dialogue to build equity within the school? A healthy school environment should never be seen as an option, but instead supported as a must-have.


 


Peter DeWitt offers leaders practical high impact strategies to improve school climate, deepen involvement in student learning, and engage a broader family network. In addition to international vignettes focused on community stakeholders and research-based practices, this book features tools such as:


•  A leadership growth cycle to help leaders build their self-efficacy


•  A teacher observation cycle centered on building collective efficacy


•  An early warning system to identify potential at-risk students


•  Action steps following each chapter to apply to your own setting


•  Discussion questions for use in team environments


 


Establishing a supportive and inclusive school climate where professionals can take risks to improve the lives of students is vital to maximize learning in any school community.






"This is a fabulous book by a renowned expert in the field of leadership. Peter DeWitt explains the complex and credible in a way that is thought-provoking, challenging and inspiring. I love how he gives insights in what successful collaborative leadership is and shows how we can all build our skills and mindset for leading towards collective efficacy."
