The effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on the school climate of an elementary school
This paper aims to analyze the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on the school climate of a basic educational institution, based on the theoretical positions of Briones (2015) and Sandoval (2004), who examine the climate organizations through perceptible characteristics as dimensions, which also function as theoretical categories of analysis. Attached to an investigation on the school environment or climate generated in the meetings of the School Technical Council of primary education, this work collects the voices of the members of the school under the ethnomethodological approach of Garfinkel (2006) and Coulon (1995). The structure, the context and the flexibility and innovation are the categories manifested in the investigation according to the collection of theoretical and empirical information, which is described to emit a series of reflections that are reflected in the conclusions. The change from face-to-face to virtual mode in the form of collegiate work, the fear of the risk of contagion on the part of the members and the possibilities of synchronous and asynchronous connectivity serve as effects of the COVID-19 pandemic to generate a dynamic school climate.
