Staff Decision Making Meeting
Finding ways to create space for everyone’s voice to be heard is as important for adults as it is for students. Staff meetings conducted in a class meeting format provide an excellent forum for authentic discussion. This template can be modified to address many decisions that need to be made. Although written for those using CCC’s school climate program (Caring School Community), it can be used in any setting.
Class meeting rules: Talk one at a time. Listen to one another. Speak respectfully to one another. Welcome differences of opinion. When discussing problems, say “people” instead of using names.
