The be nice. program is a district-wide initiative to be implemented year after year. Repetition creates familiarity making the be nice. action plan common language. The goal is for students, school and support staff, and families to feel comfortable talking openly and honestly about mental health. It’s proven that be nice. students are more apt to utilize resources if they are struggling or let a trusted adult know if they're worried about a friend.
Once your school has successfully launched the first year of programming, the renewal fee supplies you with the tools you need to successfully sustain programming.
