Tuesday, March 5, 2019
Topic: Behavior & Climate
Sponsored by: ESC-CC
Presenter(s): Andrew Ziccardi, Coordinator, School Climate, Student Services, Akron Public Schools
Teachers, administrators, staff, families, and community members need appropriate knowledge and evidence-based strategies to build the capacities of adults to support students as they develop their social and emotional skills. This program will explore the differences between school culture and school climate as means of student support. Participants will consider the mindsets, context, and school environments that support or hinder development of positive relationships and behaviors among adults and students. Presenter Andrew Ziccardi, School Climate Coordinator for Akron Public Schools, will suggest data-informed steps and structures for developing empathy practices, engaging curriculum, and positive relationship development to create the school cultures and climates for student success.
