Throughout the process these comprehensive and sustainable strategies ensure positive results such as improved academic achievement, fewer discipline referrals, and a strong sense of belonging
Over 200 schools representing urban, rural and suburban communities from 3 diff¬erent states
achieved evidence-based results that showing a dramatic improvement in school environment, pro-social and moral behavior, and reading and math test scores. Schools communities became more caring and student discipline referrals dropped significantly, particularly in areas related to bullying behavior. Test scores in moderately achieving schools increased nearly 50%.
The CHARACTERplus Way® is implemented in a two phase approach. In Phase 1, the process begins with the foundation including community involvement, character education policy, character traits, data-based planning and evaluation and staff development. Phase 2 makes it happen with curriculum integration, classroom and school wide practices, networking, experiential and service-learning, reflection and planning. The process takes place over a minimum of 42 months with support and coaching from a CHARACTERplus staff member.
The CHARACTERplus Way® is implemented on the district level and planning is typically started around January.
