Culture Coaching is a dynamic process that elevate voices in the school community to create positive long-lasting change.
WHY CULTURE COACH
Research shows that school-based Social Emotional Learning (SEL) interventions improve students’ emotional and behavioral outcomes, including violence and suicide attempts, but these positive results are difficult to sustain without longer-term changes in the whole school culture.
HOW IT WORKS
ACE’s innovative Culture Coach Program addresses the need for long-term cultural change by placing contracted SEL professionals (Culture Coaches) in partnering schools. These professionals analyze extensive data gathered from student, teacher, and parent surveys. From the data, the coaches identify areas in the school where there are opportunities for improvement in social & emotional learning.
After reviewing the school data, school personnel will determine which evidence-based interventions they think will work best in their school & classroom environments. The Culture coach will assist in implementing the interventions and evaluate its effectiveness over time.
Culture Coach is centered on elevating voices in the school so that the change comes from within the community to ensure it is
long-lasting. The Culture Coach program is a dynamic program that allows for effective collaboration amongst school personnel, trained SEL professionals, & students.
Positive outcomes from this program show higher attendance rates, a healthier social climate, more engaged teachers, increased graduation rates, and improved academic achievement.
