Quality Schools

Excerpts taken from The William Glasser Institute brochure.

The Glasser Quality School Training Program is geared towards helping individual schools create the necessary change that can lead to the creation of a Glasser Quality School.

In this process, the role of the principle, utilizing lead-management principles, is crucial to the process. Once the staff is committed to the vision of creating such a school and has begun to facilitate change in the learning environment, intensive week training is provided. Dr. Glasser has outlined six criteria to achieve the designation of a Glasser Quality School.

The following are the results realized by the twenty
Glasser-approved Quality Schools:

  • Relationships are based upon trust and respect, and all discipline problems, not incidents, have been eliminated.
  • Total Learning Competency is stressed and an evaluation that is below competence or what is now a "B" has been eliminated. All schooling as defined by Dr. William Glasser has been replaced by useful education.
  • All students do some Quality Work each year that is significantly beyond competence. All such work receives an "A" grade or higher, such as an "A+".
  • Students and staff are taught to use Choice Theory in their lives and in their work in school.
  • Parents are encouraged to participate in study groups to become familiar with the ideas of Dr. William Glasser.
  • Students do better on state proficiency tests and college entrance examinations. The importance of these tests is emphasized in the school.
  • Staff, students, parents and administrators view the school as a joyful place

Every student really can succeed and implementing Quality School ideas convinces even the most “tuned out” students that they, too, can succeed in school.

Schools have successfully applied for NCLB grant money to implement the Quality School training. Application of the ideas can be incorporated into your Continuous Improvement Plans.

Training can be done during staff development days or during the summer at your convenience.
