Coleman and Brooks Middle Schools implementing a new Character Education curriculum

Guest Posted by Judith Wensel; USD259

As we've talked about in recent meetings, Coleman and Brooks will be implementing a character education curriculum called "Positive Action" next year. It's the only program designated by the "What Works Clearinghouse" of the US Department of Education to receive a top rating in both academics and behavior.

The staffs of each school are being trained next Thursday, April 24th from 8-11 (Brooks) and from 12-3 (Coleman). As we discussed at the last meeting, the trainer is willing to share information about Positive Action with interested community agencies or other schools so if you are interested, feel free to join us for lunch at 11:15 at Coleman next Thursday, April 24th in Room C109. (Coleman is located at 1544 N. Governeour). We had discussed the possibility of having the meeting in the late afternoon but the trainer's departure time doesn't allow it.

If you would like to observe any part of the actual Positive Action training you are welcome to come to Brooks between 8:00 and 11:00 or to Coleman between noon and 3:00.

Please let me know if you plan to observe either of the trainings and/or if you plan to join us for lunch.

Thanks, Judith
