Classroom schedules are modified to include Positive Action®, a character education curriculum that includes empathy, respect, honesty, prosocial behavior, engagement/disaffection with learning, anti-bullying, and school community traits. Each grade level teacher delivers daily scripted 15-minute positive action lessons. Positive Action is integrated into the overall curriculum in a way that does not reduce core-content instruction time or increase the length of the school day.

A grade K teacher recalled a little boy who had no coordination and could barely walk at the beginning of the year. He also was nonverbal. Mid-way through the year she said that he had improved in balance and coordination and was actually running! He also started talking which then helped him be more social with the other children. She said he changed more than she had ever seen of a child in her 42 years of teaching.
