Implementation of the Burris Coaching model will include data collection instruments that measure the student’s Emotional State, a Behavior Control Checklist to measure whether or not the student understood the process, and a Relationship Satisfaction Scale that allows the students to grade their relationship with their teachers and parents, and their ability to communicate with them effectively in this relationship. It is hypothesized that student gains in Burris Emotional Measurement™ scores will correlate positively with student academic achievement gains. It is additionally hypothesized that school administration, teachers, coaches, staff and parents’ instrument score gains will also correlate positively with student’s academic achievement gains. Last, it is hypothesized that all school behavioral indicators such as behavioral problems, absenteeism, truancy, etc., will be enhanced by approximately the gains seen on the SR® instrument scores, and reflective academic achievement gains.
The SR™ Emotional Measurement™ data and academic achievement would additionally be correlated to data available at the schools with regard to gender, age, socioeconomic status and ethnicity, etc. Additional data on obesity, anorexia, bulimia, ADD, ADHD, PTSD, mental health status, attendance, truancy, and school behavioral problems will be included, depending on availability from the school.
Implementation will begin with the Burris Coaching Certification of school Administrators, Teachers, Counselors, Coaches, and Staff. After the Burris Coaching Certification of the school infrastructure personnel is completed, assessment tools and Burris Coaching workshops for the students will be implemented. Finally, Burris Coaching workshops for all parents will complete the initial implementation. Throughout the school year, as student behavioral problems and special needs situations arise, increased emphasis will be placed on identified students, their teachers and parents.
Every School Administrator, Teacher, Counselor, Coach and Staff can make a free account at Burris Connect.
Administrators, teachers, counselors, coaches, staff, parents, and students in grades 10 through 12.
After Burris Coaching Certification of administrators, teachers, counselors, coaches, and staff, this population will initiate the SR™ process with the student population and their parents, guided by Burris Institute staff. Once this infrastructure is built, it will become a permanent tool to empower and monitor the emotional state, behavior, and academic achievement of the students.
