Anyone have success creating a positive school culture without much support from the administration?

If you are having difficulty getting administration to buy in, you could work on rallying the "strongest" (most influential) faculty members to collaborate on a plan. It would be extremely difficult to change the culture of an entire school, single handedly. Are you familiar with concepts and strategies as a starting point? Have you asked admin if they would allow you to create a committee dedicated to school climate and culture? It takes a village...

Not sure how many people are in here yet- must not be the best climate if admin isn’t supportive...? Maybe there is a counselor who could help endorse it?

If you’re on a team, start there and move outward. To be honest, I’m at a huge school (IMO). People stick to their departments. I like the warm and fuzzy and knowing my coworkers. So, big adjustment for me. 😳

Is anyone else concerned about how to raise the expectations and students’ self-discipline back to pre-enabling levels?
