Dear Principal/Agenda Buyer,

The educational landscape has changed considerably in recent years. Today’s teachers and administrators are not only charged with the crucial task of helping students reach their potential academically, but also encouraging and nurturing their social/emotional growth and character development.

We at Alliance Publishing, in continued partnership with the nonprofit Josephson Institute, want to help in this endeavor through the use of our newly enhanced CHARACTER COUNTS!® School Agendas. Featuring engaging, updated content and design concepts geared toward introducing youth to the CHARACTER COUNTS! 5.0 Wheels of Success program, our innovative student planners serve as a comprehensive resource for the implementation and reinforcement of the Institute’s Model Standards for Academic, Social, Emotional, and Character Development. These standards for overall student success have been carefully established based upon current research and the hands-on experience of thousands of educators.

The 2018-2019 CHARACTER COUNTS! School Agendas promote The Six Pillars of Character® (Trustworthiness, Respect, Responsibility, Fairness, Caring, and Citizenship) through the Character Wheel of Success. The Academic and Social/Emotional Wheels of Success also featured in our planners address, respectively, the educational values, beliefs, and attitudes and social/emotional skills and traits students must possess to be fully equipped for college and career.

The 48 weekly discussion ideas appearing throughout the CHARACTER COUNTS! School Agendas give teachers various topics related to academic, social/emotional, and character development to easily integrate into classroom discussion. Quick-reference alphanumeric codes linking back to the Josephson Institute’s Model Standards are also provided to further enhance each topic. By utilizing the components of these discussion ideas, as presented in our elementary, column elementary, middle/junior high, and high school/college planners, educators are aided in guiding students to overall success, while fostering a positive, respectful, and safe school climate.

Please call us today at 1-800-518-5176. Our agenda consultants will be happy to provide you with a quote based on your school’s needs and discuss how our CHARACTER COUNTS! 5.0-infused agendas can enhance your school environment while preparing your students for success today and tomorrow.
