The Tulare County Office of Education would like to share its recipe for building a character-development initiative that forges strong school-community partnerships, produces impressive quantifiable results and spans two decades.
Actually, if you attend the February 24-26 Character Development Seminar in Visalia, California, you will get more than the recipe. You’ll see firsthand how CHARACTER COUNTS! has transformed schools and communities in the district.
Check out the flyer that our friends in Tulare created. It includes some impressive stats that attest to their program’s success.
The big photo you see there is “Pillar Square,” a manifestation of the community’s commitment to CHARACTER COUNTS! and the Six Pillars of Character.
Leading the February seminar is longtime trainer John Forenti, a veteran teacher in the district who was instrumental in making CHARACTER COUNTS! such a big success there. Read more about John in this Q&A that we ran a few years ago.
