Frequently Asked Questions

How do you implement the curriculum?


Our 7-Dose research based and core standards aligned curriculum for high school students usually is implemented over the course of seven consecutive school days in the Fall and Spring semesters. We start on a Monday and end on the following Tuesday and typically implement in ALL health or other relevant classes. Monday-Dose 1 Tuesday-Dose 2 Wednesday-Dose 3 Thursday-Dose 4 Friday-Dose 5 Monday-Dose 6 Tuesday-Dose 7 If our staffing schedule permits, we may be able to flex the schedule to accomodate days off for testing, class trips, etc.




Is there a cost?


In public school communities where grants and other fundraising resources have been secured to implement the education (step 1) and advocacy (step 2) services, the Bloom It Up program is implemented at no cost. When funding is unavailable, the cost to implement the multi-dose education and two weeks of on-site follow-up mobile advocacy services is $35 per student for 1-100 students and $10 for each additional student over the first 100. So, if funding was not secured to implement Bloom It Up at your school and you want 250 students to go through the program in the Fall, the cost for the curriculum delivery, supplies, travel, etc. PLUS two weeks of follow-up drop in advocacy services is: 100 x $35=$3,500 150 x $10=$1,500 TOTAL $5,000




How do you measure impact and can the student's work be graded?


The impact realized by our multi-dose education curricula is measured in four ways: 1. Pre/Post Survey Administered by a trained bloom365 evaluation intern or staff advocate one week prior to delivery and two weeks after, our 10 minute pre/post survey measures changes in knowledge, attitudes, motivations to seek help and the effect of Bloom It Up on bystander intervention. The survey data is collected through handheld clickers. 2. In-Dose Perception v. Reality and Capacity Assessments 3. Student Feedback card data (likert scale and ancetdotal) 4. Elephant in the Room cards 5. Workbook and creative project completion (these activities can be graded)
