When comparing 2012-2013 year end culture data to 2013-2014 year end data, the staff in this building indicated significant growth in all areas, but most noteworthy include:
- Open respectful communication among staff increased from 21% to 79%
- A clear vision for the school increased from 28% increase to 96%
- Effective handling of disciplinary issues increased from 49% to 86%
- Staff believe that there are high expectations for ALL students increased from 23% to 95%
While not all of the growth signified above can be attributed to the Leader in Me as part of the improved school culture, the building leaders and staff tend to agree that the establishment of the leadership culture, coupled with a growing enthusiasm for learning and leading, and the application of the 7 Habits with staff and students, were very significant in the improved results of this culture and climate survey.
The findings in this case study are indicative of many Leader in Me school cultures.
