Attendance Matters: Transforming School Climate and Culture During COVID

Due to popular demand, another session has been planned for December! This opportunity is two half-day interactive sessions that are relevant for staff working remotely or in-school.

  • Wednesday, December 8 from 12:00 to 2:45pm
  • Wednesday, December 15 from 12:00 to 2:45pm

You and your team can create a positive climate and culture during a pandemic! Participants will:

  • Learn strategies to build positive climate, improve school culture and decrease chronic absenteeism whether remote, in-person and 6 feet apart,
  • examine how to build healthy relationships within the school community even when behind the screen (staff with students, staff with staff, and staff with families),
  • explore strategies for difficult conversations among staff, students, and/or families,
  • access a framework (including staff survey) to assess your own school climate and culture through consensus decision-making,
  • leave the workshop with tools to help create a thriving school where all students and staff can feel welcome and be successful.

Everyone is welcome. We strongly encourage schools to register teams of 3 – 5 staff.  During the training, you will work closely with your team-whether you are in-person or working remotely. All teams will leave the training with a plan that can be used immediately!

The cost is $85 for each member of the school team (minimum of 3 team members) and $115 for an individual registration.  The same team should attend both sessions. The cost covers training and materials.  Zoom link will be forwarded after registration.  The sessions are limited to 50 participants.
