Planning & preparation will provide to be time well spent.

We want to make sure you get the largest return possible on your investment. That’s why we first recommend establishing a baseline measurement. If needed, we will work with you and your school(s) to perform a climate analysis report by surveying students, staff and optionally parents along with recommendations for improvements. Try to include key stakeholders as their support will be instrumental in enacting change. We recommend sending one or more members from the groups listed below to attend training:

  • Administrator
  • Counselor
  • Teachers
  • PTA or extra curricular activity member

Once you’ve identified your team, it’s important to establish milestones and expectations for what success will look like and be measured. This becomes much easier once you’ve identified through pre-analysis areas of improvement and your desired outcome and timeline.

We’ll work with you to shape your upcoming training to fit your needs!

Most others programs are limited in their ability to tailor their program. With CHARACTER COUNTS!, we can provide not only customized training but a range of successful models for which to emulate allowing you to determine what works best for your needs.

We encourage you to call us to discuss your needs even prior to receiving funding to assist in your efforts. We’re available weekdays during normal business hours (PST) at 310-846-4800 or send us your inquiry.

We help by providing tools for use and visual reminders for display.

Once your training has completed, you’ll want to begin implementing program steps to enhance your school culture. We carry a wide variety of products within our online store that can assist… ranging from posters and banners to curriculum materials.

In addition, after your training is completed, each participant will receive personal access to our free resources as well as to the graduate resources portal.

Measurement & improvement is a continual process.

You’ll want to maintain a record of how far you’ve come and what the effects of your implementation has accomplished – not only for yourselves but to put on display within your community and to share with parents and area leaders, which will increase your program’s scope to include more schools and perhaps even local government!
