Your school is a lot more than a center of student learning–it represents a self-contained culture with traditions and expectations that reflect its unique mission and demographics.

In School Culture Rewired, education experts Steve Gruenert and Todd Whitaker offer strategies and advice for defining, assessing, and transforming your school’s culture into one that is positive, productive, and actively working to enrich students’ lives.

Drawing from decades of research on organizational cultures and school leadership, the authors provide everything you need to optimize both the culture and climate of your school. In this revised and retooled second edition of their bestselling book, Gruenert and Whitaker

* Explore the difference between school culture and school climate.
* Show how to ensure developmentally appropriate culture change.
* Contrast collaborative and toxic school cultures.
* Address the symbiotic relationship between culture management and leadership.
* Present a framework for pinpointing the type of culture you have, the type you want, and how to bridge the two.

Though often invisible to the naked eye, a school’s culture influences everything that takes place under its roof. Whether your school is urban or rural, proficient or struggling, School Culture Rewired helps you make sure its culture is guided by what’s best for your students.
