Congratulations to the students and staff of Brazoswood High, Clute Intermediate, and Lanier Middle School for receiving the Capturing Kids’ Hearts National Showcase SchoolsTM award from the Flippen Group for the upcoming school year. These campuses have committed to being transformed into an emotionally safe and relationally connected place for students, staff, and parents to come alive with a love for learning.

Teachers and staff implement Capturing Kids’ HeartsⓇ processes to increase students’ connectedness with both peers and adults on campus. They create a classroom environment where students are excited to enter and learn every day. Clute Intermediate School has earned this distinction for three consecutive years and the other two campuses have earned this prestigious award for the past two years. As one of only 17 high schools in the nation to receive this recognition, Brazoswood High School focused their implementation on best practices of their Brazoswood High School Ninth Grade Center.

Through the Capturing Kids’ Hearts National Showcase Schools awards, the Flippen Group recognizes and celebrates campuses that go the extra mile each day, building an environment where students and staff feel safe and connected. The Flippen Group believes unsung heroes who produce exemplary outcomes in schools and pave the way for other schools to follow, need and deserve recognition for a job well done.

“We are very proud of the efforts of our staff to build meaningful connections with our students and with each other,” said BISD Superintendent Danny Massey. “This national award highlights the importance of ensuring student success through building relational capacity.”

Capturing Kids’ Hearts campuses across the country were considered for these awards based on the following criteria: 1) nomination based on observation, 2) level of implementation of Capturing Kids’ Hearts processes by all staff as measured by online surveys, and 3) data demonstrating that Capturing Kids’ Hearts has made a significant improvement in attendance, student management, climate/culture, or academics.

A Flippen Group team visited each nominated campus to gather additional quantitative and qualitative data, and to interview students, teachers, administrators, and parents. They used a matrix of key measurements to gather information during the campus walk-through. Finally, an additional survey was conducted to collect feedback regarding the perceived climate and culture of the campus and its conduciveness to learning. Following this visit, the selection team reviewed all accumulated data and selected the campuses to receive the Capturing Kids’ Hearts National Showcase Schools awards.
