Seeking Participants!

We are conducting, through the National Center for School Leadership, a research study on School Climate and Culture. The Center has conducted such studies on behalf of school districts for years but this year we decided to change things a bit. We're going completely national. And it's FREE to participate.

Why are we doing this? The primary reason is quite simple. We are changing our survey tool significantly and we'd like to quickly gather more normative data. This way, rather than simply saying "Your teachers do/don't feel valued" we can say "Your teachers feel less(or more) valued than teachers in similar school districts." Is there value in that? We think so.

If you are a school district administrator and would like to participate in this research project, visit the Research Calendar for the National Center for School Leadership.
