"I would say unequivocally, teachers, community members, and students are very excited about the implementation of the 8 Keys of Excellence. The effort has had a very positive impact on morale, behavior and character education efforts at the elementary schools. Many teachers and parents continue to let me know how the language of the Keys is evident, not only throughout the school, but throughout the community as well."

  • Results tracked and reflected continuing drops in zero-tolerance behavior: 6% first year, 12% second year, and 19% third year
  • Statistically significant in terms of how common language affected the entire process of school behaviors
  • Note: Zero-tolerance behaviors are the most severe types of negative behavior that would warrant a “trip to the Principal’s office.”
