2.         SCHOOL PARTNER DELIVERABLES

School Partner agrees to implement ASSET’s curriculum with fidelity.                                                           

Specifically, School Partner will provide the following for effective training:

  • Select 8-10 School Partner's staff to participate in initial and ongoing ASSET training.
  • Host an initial onsite ASSET training for the selected staff on School Partner-Selected Date and provide the following:
    • A classroom which is equipped with a projector/SmartBoard
    • At least 2 hours of scheduled group time for an initial training
  • Schedule 2-4 additional hours of ASSET training throughout the school year for ASSET teachers.
  • Schedule a 30-minute ASSET training for all School Partner's staff.

In addition, School Partner will:

  • Designate one Administrator or Teacher to be ASSET’s point person. The ASSET point person agrees to meet with ASSET at least once per month for 30 minutes.
  • Solicit informed consent from all parents of students who will be learning ASSET tools in their classes before the week of September 10th, 2018.
  • Allow ASSET to highlight school as a partner and feature School Partner’s logo on ASSET’s website for the duration of the partnership.
  • Commit with fidelity to follow ASSET’s implementation schedule by incorporating the lessons into classes at a minimum of once per week.
  • Commit with fidelity to follow ASSET’s high-stress mitigation plan by implementing the lessons school-wide before high-stress times.
  • Direct the selected ASSET teachers to follow the lesson plan schedule created by ASSET for School Partner by teaching each aspect of the lesson without omissions.
  • If a teacher requires help to successfully implement the curriculum in their classroom, they will communicate their need for assistance and collaborate with ASSET, to create a solution. If the teacher is still unable to implement the curriculum in alignment with the schedule or revised plan, ASSET will not be responsible for their curriculum outcomes.

If the School Partner fails to incorporate the curriculum into their classes, follow the lesson plans, provide the surveys for the impact report, or any one of these actions, ASSET is not responsible for the outcomes of their students. School Partner will immediately notify ASSET if one of these three activities are not being performed and together the Parties will review needs to be implemented, and create a new plan. If School Partner and ASSET cannot agree to a new plan, then the partnership will be terminated, and neither School Partner nor ASSET will have any ongoing obligations to each other.

School Partner agrees to complete the following activities so ASSET can conduct an Impact Report on their implementation:

  • Follow the Impact Report information collection timeline created by ASSET.
  • Recognize ASSET as a school official under FERPA for the purpose of delivering curriculum and evaluation of curriculum for the School Partner.
