Program Description
The Woodland Character Education Program is a partnership between Woodland Joint Unified School District and Yolo Family Resource Center. The project will implement the Life Skills/Lifelong Guidelines model to improve classroom and school climate. Yolo Family Resource Center will provide parent education, monthly parenting life-skills workshops in English and Spanish, life-skills activities that parents and their children can do together; and counseling and emergency services when needed. The project will serve approximately 2,500 K-6 students and 179 teachers in six experimental elementary schools.

  • To increase parent, student and teacher perception of positive school climate
  • To improve parent involvement
  • To increase student understanding, knowledge and practical applications of Life Skills/Lifelong Guidelines
  • To improve student achievement

Evaluation Design
Woodland Joint Unified School District will use a quasi-experimental evaluation design. The evaluator and school personnel will use formative and summative evaluation strategies in reviewing the suspension and academic achievement quantitative data; and survey and focus group qualitative data.
