Description

The Positive Action (PA) program is an integrated, comprehensive, and coherent program that has been shown to improve academic achievement and multiple behaviors of children and adolescents (5 to 18 years old) and their parents and teachers. It is intensive, with lessons at each grade level (from kindergarten to 12th) that are reinforced all day by including school, family, and community components, which work together or can stand alone. It includes school, family, and community components, which work together or can stand alone.
For students, Positive Action improves:
*Individual self-concept
* Academic achievement and learning skills
* Decision making, problem-solving, and social/interpersonal skills
* Physical and mental health
* Behavior, character, and responsibility
PA improves school climate, attendance, achievement scores, disciplinary referrals/suspensions, parent and community involvement, services for special-need and high-risk students, efficiency, and effectiveness. PA positively affects instruction and classroom/school management skills of school personnel through improved self-concept, professionalism, and interpersonal/social skills and, in turn, has a positive impact on their personal lives.
Finally, PA helps families by improving parent-child relations and overall family attitudes toward and involvement in school and the community.
