Agenda Item #6
Spotlight on Education
Brevard's schools and students shine in so many areas. In an effort to share as many of the exciting, innovative and excellent programs, activities and/or projects happening in Brevard Public Schools, we will be featuring a different school/program at every other Board Meeting (time permitting).
Welcome Madison Middle School as the Spotlight on Education, whose representatives will be showcasing the school's implementation of the Sources of Strength program. Sources of Strength is a research based suicide prevention program designed to harness the power of peer networks to change unhealthy norms and culture. The program advocates peer leader's connectivity to adult advisers to talk about the real problems youths face, with a goal of creating positive conversations about seeking help in a time of need.
