Are there discounts for block bookings?

  • Yes, we do offer a discount for multiple bookings. For instance, when are booked for all of the schools in a given school district the price is discounted. We also can arrange a discount when schools "buddy-up" with a neighboring school if we are able to visit one school in the morning and one school in the afternoon of the same day.

How are the children used for role play chosen?

  • The students that role-play during the assembly are typically chosen by the School Counselor. Guidelines are provided in the Contract Addendum, which is provided upon scheduling a program. In short, counselors are encouraged to choose a diverse group of 6 students from the older grades. Typically, in the case of more that one assembly in a given day, the same children will be used.

How can the program be customized for our school?

  • Our digital slide format makes it easy to present information that is specific to your school. In addition to the research-based concepts that are integral to the program, the show can provide specific statistical data from your school bullying survey and present it to the student body. For example, one school found in their survey that a substantial percentage of bullying behavior was occurring in the bathroom. Because there are unlikely to be bystanders to support targets in this situation, our program offered strategies for addressing mean behavior when there is no one there to help. Another school was having a problem with student campaign posters being vandalized, so we examined the concept of property destruction as bullying behavior. Addressing specific school issues in an all-school assembly increases awareness; offering strategies to correct the problem can make it disappear. We can also include information regarding bullying reporting procedures, consequences for specific bullying behaviors, and other resources and policies that are particular to your school.
