Description

Why do some schools succeed while
others struggle? Why do policies and programs often fail to deliver what they
promise? In this follow-up to their insightful book School Culture Rewired: How to Define, Assess, and Transform It,
authors Steve Gruenert and Todd Whitaker offer practical advice and strategies
that help you build positive energy to reinvigorate your school's culture and
staff.


Written as a stand-alone guide, School Culture Recharged clarifies the
difference between culture and climate and zeroes in on key school improvement efforts,
including




  • Moving from the culture
    you have to the culture you want;



  • Using the school's
    culture to improve teaching, job satisfaction, and morale;



  • Maximizing the intentions
    of professional learning communities; and




  • Developing organizational
    habits - rules and rituals - that can contribute to positive change.




For education leaders at all levels,
this book delivers a compelling message: Understanding and harnessing the
transformative power of school culture can propel your school into the kind of
place where teachers want to work, administrators can focus on what matters
most, and students can thrive.
