The Development of the Organizational Climate Index for High Schools: Its Measure and Relationship to Faculty Trust
Hoy, Wayne K.; Smith, Page A.; Sweetland, Scott R.
High School Journal, v86 n2 p38-49 Dec 2002-Jan 2003
A parsimonious measure of organizational climate of high schools is developed and tested in this research. The Organizational Climate Index (OCI) captures open and healthy dimensions of high school climates at the student, teacher, principal, and community levels. Next the relationship between the climate of schools and faculty trust is examined in a large, diverse sample of high schools (N = 97). Different dimensions of high school climate explain distinct aspects of faculty trust-faculty trust in colleagues, in principals, and in clients (students and parents). (Contains 4 tables.)
