Pathways to Achievement through Development of Culture

Mt. Carmel has spent four years reorganizing and reformatting how students and teachers engage in the process of learning. Participants will understand how agency – developed first in the adults at Mt. Carmel – helped build pathways to achievement for our students through relationships, mindsets, and innovations. We will explore our four-year process of developing and implementing our purpose statement, “Crafting the Student Experience.” We will look at how this purpose statement has generated a number of questions about our practice and how the pursuit of answering these questions has helped us uncover many answers to some of our challenges. The session includes how to improve data markers for A-G completion, attendance, discipline, and a kind and caring culture.

Audience: Middle Teacher, High School Teacher, Middle School Counselor, High School Counselor, Middle School Administrators, High School Administrators, District Office Leaders
