School Culture Recharged: Strategies to Energize Your Staff and Culture by Steve Gruenert

Why do some schools succeed while others struggle? Why do policies and programs often fail to deliver what they promise? In this follow-up to their insightful School Culture Rewired: How to Define, Assess, and Transform It, authors Steve Gruenert and Todd Whitaker offer practical advice and strategies that help you build positive energy to reinvigorate your school's culture and staff.

Written as a standalone guide, School Culture Recharged clarifies the difference between culture and climate and zeroes in on key school improvement efforts, including

  • Moving from the culture you have to the culture you want;
  • Using the school's culture to improve teaching, job satisfaction, and morale;
  • Maximizing the intentions of professional learning communities; and
  • Developing organizational habits—rules and rituals—that can contribute to positive change.

For education leaders at all levels, this book delivers a compelling message: Understanding and harnessing the transformative power of school culture can propel your school into the kind of place where teachers want to work, administrators can focus on what matters most, and students can thrive.
