Act Now! Bullying Prevention Staff Training Grant Expectations
Once you have reviewed and understand the grant expectations detailed below, complete the $1,500 Act Now! Staff Training Grant application. Schools are expected to submit an implementation plan that addresses policy, systems and environmental changes. As part of the application process, schools are required to include a timeline of events and a description of how the funds will be utilized.
The project implementation plan should include:
- Participation from at least 80% of school staff to complete the Act Now! Staff Training Program, including specified evaluation components (If at all possible, you want to be sure to include building engineers, custodial crew, food service staff, bus drivers, classroom aides/teaching assistants, support staff, teachers and administrators.)
- Identifying which classroom/s commit to ensuring students complete the Act Now! student e-learning course, including specified evaluation components (must be a minimum of 1 classroom)
- How you will plan to share information about the Parents Act Now! resources with the school community
Funds can be used at the school’s discretion to support staff training and bullying prevention initiatives. This can include staff time for training, materials for a school-wide campaign or other efforts to support this work.
One school staff member will be named as the project champion who will serve as the primary contact person.
The project will strive to include policy, systems and environmental changes.
Participation in a short phone interview with an external evaluator.
Materials developed for the project’s use must include Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin and Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction branding or recognition (these materials may also include additional sponsors/partners). Children’s must approve such materials prior to their use.
Submit a summary of the project’s successes and reach that can be shared at other venues such as state conferences, Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin websites, and/or organizational newsletters no later than June 15, 2019. This summary should use the template that will be provided, and can also include photos and/or video to highlight the project and the outcomes achieved. We want to showcase the results of your hard work!
