On May 5, Capturing Kids’ Hearts (CKH) Founder Flip Flippen announced that all six Splendora ISD campuses were named Capturing Kids’ Hearts National Showcase Schools® for the 2021-2022 school year. The district now has the opportunity to become a Capturing Kids’ Hearts National Showcase SchoolDistrict. Representatives from The Flippen Group will evaluate how the Capturing Kids’ Hearts processes are used in other areas of the district (School Board, Transportation, Food Services, District personnel, etc.)
The CKH process was first introduced at Splendora Junior High in 2017. The following year, the remaining four campuses were brought on board, and Timber Lakes Elementary began in 2020. Teachers, staff, and administrators learn and practice skills they use and model in their classrooms, schools, and district. The CKH processes help build positive, meaningful, productive relationships with every student and colleague. Good Things are shared at the beginning of each class to start on a positive note. Social contracts are used to develop self-managing, high-performing classrooms, and are developed based on how students and teachers want to be treated.
“It is an incredible honor for each of our campuses to be recognized as National Showcase Schools, and it speaks to the intentionality and purposefulness of our adherence to the process. We will continue to focus on building positive, appropriate relationships and using these tools to help our students become better advocates for themselves and others. I would like to thank each of our campus principals for their commitment to our culture,” said Superintendent Jeff Burke.
