What is the Ultimate School Climate?

The ultimate school climate embodies the creation of a community and educational culture that:

  • Is developed, embraced, and nurtured by students, teachers, administrators, parents, and community members.
  • Explores the social and emotional aspects of who you want to be as students, educators, and a greater community.
  • Challenges members to build relationships, strong character traits, and life skills.

How is this program different?

The Ultimate School Climate is a process, not a product. It will help your school district and educational community integrate the Full Value Agreement into all aspects of everyday life at your schools. It is a development tool that influences the way your district operates. Before you know it, the Ultimate School Climate will be at the center of your day-to-day operations in the classroom, the office, and beyond.

What is the Full Value Agreement?

The Full Value Agreement is a useful tool to stimulate learning and help individuals as well as groups achieve their goals while participating in a shared experience. When working in a team, it is beneficial to have members agree to certain guidelines under which people can operate and return to in the case of an issue.

In addition, the Full Value Agreement can be an effective way to evaluate behavior and progress towards group goals.

An Ultimate School Climate promotes the development and use of social/emotional competencies (i.e., respect, integrity, communication, and problem-solving skills) in the context of creating safe and supportive school, family, and community learning environments. In such environments, people (students and staff) feel cared for, respected, connected, and engaged in learning.

What are the Benefits?

The Ultimate School Climate encompasses the creation of a community and educational culture.

  • Concise and adaptable
  • Will help your district function as a team
  • Provides a consistent framework for any situation
  • Addresses social and emotional learning expectations and outcomes

How Do You Get Started?

This is a three-phase process…

  1. Discovery Phase: We will learn the unique process of operations for your district.
  2. Developmental Phase: Once we understand the direction you would like to help move your district in, we can determine collaboratively how to integrate the Full Value Agreement into your school community.
  3. Delivery Phase: With our help, you will form a plan designed to incorporate effective techniques to transform the educational experience.
