ALIVE Receives Backing from Independent External Review

Curriculum Research and Evaluation, an external evaluator of educational programs, spent six months studying ALIVE this year by reviewing documents, observing programs, interviewing students, teachers, and community partners, and conducting surveys.  They conclude that:

“All indications are that the ALIVE interventions implemented in the individual schools are showing evidence of improvements in behavior, improved learning opportunities, calmer school environments, more secure students, and teachers that are more confident. Overall ALIVE has led to greater opportunities for teachers to teach and students to learn.” (CRE, August 2015)
