Crockett, Johnson and Jones Elementary were chosen as three of only 53 schools nationwide honored as Capturing Kids’ Hearts National Showcase Schools nominees for 2016-2017.
This is the same award that Johnson Elementary won last year. A Flippen Group site team visited with each school this spring to gather data, observe classrooms and interview students, teachers, administrators and parents.
Each nominated school started the processes of incorporating the Capturing Kids’ Hearts program into its campus three years ago. Since then, each school has seen a reduction in their total discipline referrals compared to when they implemented the program.
In addition to data the Flippen Group gathered on campus visits, it conducted surveys to collect feedback regarding “the perceived climate and culture of the campuses and their conduciveness to learning.”
