The Academy – SF will be using their 2017-18 Innovation Award for staff celebrations, relationship development, and community building focused on creating a thriving faculty culture.
It became clear to The Academy that in order to move forward together as a community to equitably meet their school goal, they needed to incorporate improvement goals for their staff culture. They aim to develop more of a collaborative, honest culture amongst the staff in service of students. Paying attention to staff culture will enable an effective shift of their overall school culture. By working together in a truthful, trusting, and collaborative manner, the staff can effectively work to improve the school as a true community of partners focused on student growth.
