The Washington Elementary Process Champions team is all smiles after a call with the Flippen Group where they learned more about being a 2019-2020 Capturing Kids’ Hearts National Showcase School® Nominee.
Capturing Kids’ Hearts® is an immersive, participatory experience where teachers, staff, and administrators learn and practice skills they will use and model in their classrooms, schools, and districts. Campuses implementing Capturing Kids’ Hearts® processes consistently report increases in academic improvement and behavior reductions. “Discipline problems nearly non-existent,” and “academic achievement constantly improving,” are common feedback. Nominees are evaluated and selected based on survey and performance data from administrators, teachers, staff and students. There are 261 U.S. school campuses that have been selected as 2019-2020 nominees.
The Flippen Group is a national professional development provider operating on principles that research clearly demonstrates –that students are most likely to succeed when they are emotionally safe and able to reconnect with their natural curiosity. Through the National Showcase Schools™ awards, the Flippen Group recognizes and celebrates schools that go the extra mile each day, creating the socio-emotional safety on school campuses that is conducive to learning. Flippen Group founder, Flip Flippen, began teaching Capturing Kids’ Hearts® processes to schools in 1990.
