It goes without saying that a school’s features and culture have a monumental impact upon its students’ development; and schools have long understood that their influence on students goes far beyond their academic development.
Yet when it comes to initiatives for enhancing student performance, schools are almost exclusively thinking and planning in the academic realm. “Increasing academic rigor,” “Raising standards,” and changes to curriculum are most frequent ways schools seek to improve student outcomes. The reality, however, is how these are implemented often increases stress, erodes the balance in the students’ day, increases health risks, and decreases the students’ capacity to perform!
A better strategy is to design a schedule, nurture a culture, and set policies that increase your students’ capacity to perform. This Webinar is for all school leaders, particularly Division Heads, who are interested in balancing the student experience.
You'll cover the significant influencers on student performance including these and more:
- The Sense of Community (supportiveness + predictability)
- The School Calendar
- The School’s Schedule
- The Student’s Day
- Homework and “Rigor”
- Sleep and Nutrition
- Student Assessments of Learning
Total run time is 60 minutes. The presentation will run approximately 45 minutes with15 minutes designated for Q&A.
