CharacterStrong Core Components: CharacterStrong is comprised of four core components that, when combined together and implemented with fidelity, create a recipe that (1) enhances the culture and climate of a school through an increase in prosocial behaviors in staff and students and (2) enables students through the acquisition of social, emotional, and character skills and an elevated sense of safety, belonging, and purpose in school to function and perform better academically, socially, and behaviorally. In turn, improved academic, social, and behavioral functioning optimizes student academic potential and their eventual success in civic, home, and private aspects of adult life.
The components are:
1.School wide integration
2.Tier 1 curriculum – Advisory (middle school) and PurposeFull People Toolkit (elementary school)
3.Adult Relationship Practices
