      Oklahoma teachers, ESPs, and state employees: This is a call to solidarity, a challenge to wear your employee identification / badges / lanyards everywhere, all the time. Wear your ID with pride in the grocery store, at church, going for a walk, and even on the weekends. #oklaed

    A1 School climate is the feel of the school. How supported do Ss, Ts, As feel? Do people look forward to going? Does communication happen? Does everyone get along? School climate is the general vibe. #oklaed

  • jlreed2011 Mar 25 @ 9:08 PM EDT
    A1) School climate is the soul of a building. It is the customs, beliefs, and behaviors of all within the building. #oklaed
  • ShariGateley Mar 25 @ 9:08 PM EDT
    A1 - School climate is the feeling of the building. It is what tells a student that this is a place I can succeed or this is a place that doesn’t care about my success. A positive climate is the MOST important factor in determining student success. #oklaed
  • grendelrick Mar 25 @ 9:08 PM EDT
    A1 #oklaed It's the culture intentionally driven by the principal and staff through their policies, priorities, and actions.
  • djthoreson Mar 25 @ 9:08 PM EDT
    A1: School climate is what the school feels like - what a visitor will pick up about the attitudes that abound if they spend a little time there. #oklaed

    #oklaed The culture, feelings, attitudes, conversations, perceptions of all that are involved with the school.
  • chuck_pack Mar 25 @ 9:08 PM EDT
    A1) It's defined as the quality & character of school life. It is based on patterns of Ss, Ps' and school personnel's experience of school life; it reflects norms, goals, values, interpersonal relationships, teaching and learning practices, and organizational structures. #oklaed
  • elliottn76 Mar 25 @ 9:09 PM EDT
    A1: School climate could be summed up as the heart and soul of the school! #oklaed

  • jcbjr Mar 25 @ 9:09 PM EDT
    Q1?? #oklaed
  • tchingelements Mar 25 @ 9:09 PM EDT
    A1 School climate is the feeling you have when you walk in - positive, negative, supportive, loved - and involves all stakeholders #oklaed
  • KimberBlodgett Mar 25 @ 9:09 PM EDT
    A1: School climate is the environment in which your school is made of. It's how you feel when you walk into that school. Do you feel included or excluded? Is it a welcoming atmosphere or does everyone seem angry or disgruntled? #Oklaed It's what you want it to be.
  • JanalynTaylor Mar 25 @ 9:09 PM EDT

  • DonleyVicki Mar 25 @ 9:09 PM EDT
    A1) SC is making school life more personal and contributing positive reflections so other school personnel and Ss can gain personal growth and more positive behaviors. #oklaed
  • ProfeSteiner Mar 25 @ 9:10 PM EDT
    A1) I believe School Climate is the general "feeling" of the school. Do the Ts and Ss really want to be there or is it a matter of obligation. #oklaed
  • Stv_Gilliland Mar 25 @ 9:10 PM EDT
    A1: Is it a place where people want to be? Value & support are important factors as well as are voices being heard. #oklaed
  • MrGragg Mar 25 @ 9:10 PM EDT
    A1 - The "feels" of the school. #oklaed
  • KristinAtchley Mar 25 @ 9:10 PM EDT
    A1: Climate is the general feel within the school environment. How people interact & treat one another. It is VITAL to learning! #oklaed
  • mrspitts19 Mar 25 @ 9:10 PM EDT
    A1: It’s the “what’s up?” Of the building. Involving those inside the walls, and outside the walls. Perception, feel, “word on the street” of the school community. #oklaed
  • kasnelson Mar 25 @ 9:10 PM EDT

    A1. Agreed. I do A LOT of observations at schools and it is always so telling how a school can make you FEEL (welcomed) when you walk in. Climate is in the details: school pride decorations, cleanliness, student reactions to visitors, check in procedures, admin available #OKLAED
    • room20awesome Mar 25 @ 9:08 PM EDT

  • 451Flame Mar 25 @ 9:13 PM EDT
    A2) School climate is what often keeps Ts - good Ts - where they are. If you like going to work, you stay. Ss also can tell when Ts enjoy being at school. Climate is essential for happy Ts and staff. #OklaEd
  • allen_lehman Mar 25 @ 9:13 PM EDT
    A2 Climate sets the tone. If everyone is happy to be there, productivity and learning and all things good will ensue. Positive school climate means less complaining, happier Ts and As. Collaborating > complaining, eh? #oklaed
  • lifelonglearner Mar 25 @ 9:13 PM EDT

  • fairwej Mar 25 @ 9:13 PM EDT
    A2: It allows the students to feel comfortable #brogedrsrch #oklaed
  • allen_lehman Mar 25 @ 9:13 PM EDT
    Which is the most important piece, really. #oklaed
  • KristinAtchley Mar 25 @ 9:13 PM EDT
    A2: it either empowers Ss & Ts or tells them their voice is not valued. Ts set a tone to one another and to Ss. Admins do the same to all including families. People should feel seen & valued. #oklaed
  • ProfeSteiner Mar 25 @ 9:13 PM EDT
    A2: If the School Climate is healthy and positive it certainly makes the inevitable "negative incidents or circumstances" a lot easier to overcome and address when and if they occur. #oklaed
  • jasonbengs Mar 25 @ 9:13 PM EDT
    A2 Climate greatly impacts learning. Positive climate promotes safety, which leads to greater learning. Negative climate promotes disinterest and disengaged Ss & Ts. Everyone is just putting in their time. #oklaed

    Craig Wall, Interim Supt., Valliant After an abbreviated retirement, I'm back for now......#oklaed
  • ShelbyJr3 Mar 25 @ 9:14 PM EDT
    A3: I have kids. I don’t want them to go to school in a place that feels... off. Kids need to WANT to be at school, makes everything easier after that. #oklaed
  • ShariGateley Mar 25 @ 9:14 PM EDT
    A2 - Climate is what keeps everyone going. A positive climate provides students with a community they know supports them and will do whatever it takes for them to be successful. If a climate is negative, students will fall through the cracks and that is UNACCEPTABLE! #OklaEd
  • djthoreson Mar 25 @ 9:14 PM EDT
    A2: Since school climate is like the attitude of the school, it's contagious like attitude - if you are surrounded by cheating, it must be okay; if positivity abounds, it must be the expectation. The people involved tend to reflect the climate. #oklaed
  • thestephhinton Mar 25 @ 9:14 PM EDT
    A2) Students learn in environments where they feel comfortable and welcomed... teachers and admin thrive in those same conditions... parents want their students to be in and be apart of the school #oklaed
  • chuck_pack Mar 25 @ 9:14 PM EDT
    A2) According to NEA, a positive school climate is recognized as an important target for school reform and improving behavioral, academic, and mental health outcomes for students (Thapa et al., 2012). #oklaed
  • bakerleft Mar 25 @ 9:14 PM EDT
    A2: School climate has the potential to be oppressive to large portions of Ss and Ts, depending on who sets it. #oklaed
  • MrTrent13 Mar 25 @ 9:14 PM EDT
    A2) Climate trumps everything else. Once a positive, caring, consistent climate is established, the sky is the limit on what the school can accomplish. Without it, the wheels are just waiting to come off! #oklaed

  • mrspitts19 Mar 25 @ 9:15 PM EDT
    A2: It is important because it is the pink striped polka-dotted riding on roller skates elephant in the room. It can be hidden in whispers in the hallway or shouted from the rooftops. If it is good, everyone shows it. If it isn’t, everyone knows it. #oklaed

    A2) A great SC creates a family-atmosphere between teachers, thus pouring over to the students. It’s learning about each other and enjoying each other. It creates caring. #oklaed

    A2: School climate includes everyone. Ts, Support staff, Admin, and most of all Ss. If we want our school to be a positive place, where our Ss feel safe, where our Ts feel heard, where our Admin feel respected, Climate is important. It's on all of us! #oklaed
  • elliottn76 Mar 25 @ 9:16 PM EDT
    A2: The overall climate is important because it's extremely hard to expect students to learn and teachers to teach unless they feel like it's "their" school. A good climate is one that's based on a school family approach! #oklaed

    #OklaEd A2: IF my answer to Q1 is consistent with prevailing definitions, school climate is important in that it represents the cooperative efforts of all involved in facilitating the Effective Learning skills development of the school’s students. (I like my definitions anyhow.)

    A3: We do use PBIS. I am new to my district this year so I am learning. My former district did not use PBIS. I like that it focuses on restoring the relationship. It's important for our Ss to know that we still love you. This was just a thing. We are still okay. #oklaed

    A3) Yes, I'm in the same district. However, school climate is more than a program or system. It is treating all with the respect that they are doing what they feel is right and that there is no alternative motive. A focus on the positive instead of the negative. #oklaed

    A5 - At the high school level, it is buy-in. I think sometimes HS Ts believe that all-or-nothing discipline teaches responsibility & so talking about PBIS is hard. But, like @bakerleft said, I think it goes back to talking about bias and tolerance in the beginning. #OklaEd

    #OklaEd “Taught” is so very overemphasized and used with higher than realistic expectations, especially in this case. IF any teacher says the ‘right’ thing (rather than living the ‘right’ thing), that teacher has been bullied or mandated to do so ... OR just cares not!!!

    Your mindset with discipline starts with your view of the rules. Typically, they fall in four categories: 1) Safety 2) Preserving instruction 3) Image 4) Tradition All of these matter. 1 and 2 matter more than 3 and 4. #oklaed
  • watersenglish Mar 25 @ 9:52 PM EDT
    A6 I know that in secondary, you have to partner with the Ss. You have to let them know that you want them to succeed, and that's why you're asking for a behavior change. They have to know that you care, not that you're just trying to get them in trouble. #oklaed
