Something better than a Climate Survey
Biggest Takeaways You Don't Want to Miss:
- Most climate surveys really don’t give you true insight into the climate and culture of your school. Both the way the questions are structured and the results are reported can actually blur what’s really going on in your school.
- Builders go beyond climate surveys and get to the heart of what’s happening in their schools so that they can stop toxicity before it has a chance to destroy their culture.
- The most important climate questions you can ask are “Are our core values still non-negotiable? Why or why not?” How your teachers answer this question will point you to what’s really going on in your culture.
- If your teachers don’t know your core values or can’t remember them, this is probably at the root of most of your issues around culture in your school.
Most of us do some sort of climate survey with our staff at the end of the year, but unfortunately, the way that most climate surveys are structured doesn’t give us real insight into how teachers are truly doing or where our culture may be really vulnerable.
That’s why this week as we continue our series on how to end the year strong, we’re discussing an alternative to climate surveys.
Discover how Builders use this alternative to get to the root of any issues in their climate before those issues have the chance to destroy their culture. And, find out the specific questions you can ask to help you get true insight into your climate.
By the time you’re done, you’ll not only know how to sleuth out what your teachers really think, but you’ll know how to use this process to reinforce your school core values and set teachers up for an even healthier culture in the fall #LikeABuilder.
