TAUNTON — Superintendent-Director Dr. Alexandre Magalhaes and Vocational Coordinator Jackie Machamer are pleased to announce that Bristol-Plymouth Regional Technical School has been named a EVERFI Empowered School for 2021.
The EVERFI Empowered Seal acknowledges Bristol-Plymouth’s dedication to providing an evidence-informed education that prepares students for success in the real world. Through their partnership with EVERFI the school has successfully implemented multiple programs and services focused on critical skills.
The honor is awarded annually by EVERFI, a digital education organization focused on helping educators address the most challenging issues affecting society.
“Only six percent of districts across the nation earn the EVERFI Empowered designation, and we are honored to be on the list for this year,” Superintendent Magalhaes said. “Our educators are dedicated to teaching the whole child because we know that it not only impacts how healthy and productive students are during their time with us, but also their well-being and success far beyond their years at B-P.”
The EVERFI Empowered Seal is a designation awarded to K-12 school districts and individual schools that have demonstrated an exemplary commitment to whole-child education through the use of EVERFI’s comprehensive, evidence-informed digital programs. The programs inform and empower students on critical issues including financial literacy, social-emotional learning, health and wellness, inclusion, and college and career readiness.
EVERFI’s team of subject matter experts and curriculum designers established criteria that a district or school must meet to earn the K-12 Empowered Seal. These criteria include:
- Efficacy-based Programs: Accurate, supported by research, diverse instructional methods
- Well-trained Staff: Educators implementing the program receive high-quality training
- Appropriate Placement: Correct grade-level and timing, meets curriculum standards
- Sufficient Reach: Courses deployed to an entire grade-level with high usage and completion
- Outcomes Evaluated: Results reviewed to ensure student impact and knowledge gain
Bristol-Plymouth has implemented EVERFI courses including Technology with the school’s exploratory freshmen and Management & Entrepreneurship for students in grade 11.
