Hi Jaan. In response to your question, there have been many different methods of implementation. Some examples: In a local school district one person is delivering the program to all grade 5 students in that district. In another school district, schools within it have adopted the program as a school wide initiative, with modifications made for the younger children (k 2) and the older children (grades 6 7). In another school, three teachers are instructing the children that they teach each year in grades 3, 4 and 5. And in another school district some counselors are using the program solely while others are drawing from it and incorporating the material with other programs. There are many different methods of implementation. I just received an invitation to speak at a parent council meeting of a school in which the program was adopted as a school wide initiative. The parents are now interested in the family/parent component of the program which is absolutely wonderful. Take care - Marilyn
