“This grant is to support our school’s professional development goals for the next two years. The professional development goal of this project is to provide the staff with the resources required to modernize our SEL curriculum and support the saturation of our campus with new energy, relationship building and awareness. This objective will have three primary components: to evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of our current character education program, redesign our current character education program in order to expand its relevance, and to engage staff in the implementation of the changes in design.”
