Port Clinton Schools are excited to share an “R Factor” journey they have been on in the school district over the past three years.
The school district has identified three core beliefs, the behaviors that accompany those beliefs and the outcomes achieved if we live our behaviors. Port Clinton Schools three core beliefs are: Together…, Relentless Pursuit of Growth, and Own It! These three beliefs tie into “R-Factor” training which helps the entire school district achieve their best academic and developmental outcomes.
R Factor is a culture, behavior, and decision-making framework students will use to develop exceptional life skills to successfully navigate their school and life experiences. Port Clinton schools devoted the first week of school to using R Factor in order to build positive relationships and strengthen the culture of the school community.
“Culture is what we believe, how we behave, and the experiences we create for others. It is the foundation of which our school district is built”, said Patrick Adkins, Superintendent of Schools. As a result, during the first week of school, the culture of the school district is changing and the school district wants to carry this message to parents and the community.
To learn more about R Factor, the school district has a meeting planned for Sept. 18 at 6 p.m. in the PCHS Conference Room. Parents will learn the same strategies and skills.
“Over two years ago, with the backing of our athletic boosters, our schools entered into a partnership with an organization called Focus 3,” said Adkins. Focus 3’s CEO, Tim Kight, serves as the leadership coach for Ohio State University and many collegiate and professional teams and organizations across the country. His work is featured in Urban Meyer’s book “Above the Line.”
