Exploring Pathways to Reimagining School Culture

Education continues to evolve with the changing needs of society. Teaching and learning strategies, curriculum innovations and competencies that deliver value to students and ensure achievement of desired learning outcomes continue to emerge. However, these have been identified to thrive within an ecosystem with responsive culture, beliefs, values and climate.

School culture has always been described as the glue that sticks a school together. As such, it is important for schools to explore practical cultural pathways in tandem with curriculum innovations, strategic priorities and objectives. Schools must also evaluate and review the extent to which existing cultural practices and values support student dispositions and learning outcomes as well as teacher wellbeing and performance.

Learning Objectives

  • Understand culture, and most importantly, from a school’s context.
  • Discuss characteristics that make up a positive and toxic school culture.
  • Evaluate how these impact a school’s ecosystem.
  • Assess the current needs of members of school communities; re-evaluate the values and beliefs that support their needs and create conditions for long-term success.

Target Audience

Educators, Paraprofessional Educators, School Leaders and Governing Boards.
