Abstract:

The state of well-being for staff and students has fallen on hard times indeed. The basics of learning require strong relationships between students, teachers, administrators, and communities. Innovative and effective school cultures do not emerge without high levels of staff engagement. But how do we get there and what is most critical to address now? Join the next round of thought leadership as we seek to transform learning experiences by hitting the roots 'well schools'.


Learning Objectives: 

  1. Participants will be exposed to the current data on both staff and student wellness in schools, including major cited causality. 
  2. Participants will examine major areas of action that contribute heavily to "well schools". A taxonomy of schools will be reviewed to identify key attributes of "successful" laddering strategies. 
  3. Participants will be presented with strategies associated with exemplar case studies and best practice in developing thriving cultures including the use of teaching alignment with space as a catalyst for change. 
  4. Participants will be assigned a school scenario ranging across the taxonomy and be asked to consolidate their understanding of the primary issues the particular learning community likely faces regarding well being of student and staff.
