THE CHARACTERPLUS WAY

CharacterPlus Way® is an evidence-based process developed by CharacterPlus® to transform school climate, increase academic achievement, and reduce behavior referrals. The three-year process was the focus of a federally funded study, and the successful results led to CharacterPlus Way being listed on the prestigious National Registry of Evidence-based Programs and Practices (NREPP) and as a Promising Program with CASEL.
 

Customized on-site coaching and consultation services are at the core of the process. This allows schools to address their specific issues at a pace that works for their staff and students, ultimately leading to whole-school transformation.


The CharacterPlus Way goal is always sustainability, so schools can continue to see results long after we complete the process. Whether we are working with early childhood, elementary, middle, or high schools, those that achieve success with CharacterPlus Way have one thing in common: their leadership is very strongly committed to the process and to making staff time available for coaching and consulting.
