Participating Schools and Supervisory Unions '08-‘09
This school year, our Center for Respectful Schools is directly training 233 leaders from 17 schools in 9 school districts, including 217 youth and 16 teachers. Each of these people in turn leads discussions and special events with their classrooms and other peers. Thus, our efforts impact the entire school community. We estimate that our leaders influence an estimated 5,800 youth, and approximately 500 adults participate as partners and/or attend special events.

 

The table below shows current 2008-09 school year participation.
