Christian County, culture makes the school
Christian County – Culture Audit: If you find yourself wondering what that means, you're not alone. It's a technique the superintendents of Christian County Public Schools have put in play, to learn the unwritten rules that make each school tick. The goal is to improve education quality in the district, historically one of the lower performing in the state. In practical terms, a culture audit involves three steps: surveys, interviews with students, staff and teachers, and a school walk-through. But the benefits reveal themselves in the abstract. Jacque Day spoke with Superintendent Brady Link and assistant superintendents Rim Watson and Janie Tomek to get a glimpse inside the process of learning about a school's culture.
