"Thank you so much for coming to Mt. Airy School to present to our 3rd -6th grade students on issues related to bullying and strategies to prevent bullying. So many students were excited and benefited from your resources. As a building, it has helped us target the students in need. We definitely look forward to working with you again!"

"COCA has completed amazing work at Silverton this year by supporting our bullying identification and prevention efforts. COCA has been an invaluable consultant and partner with Silverton and the work has enabled us to implement proactive measures to prevent and address bullying. Our school community has embraced the educational information and data that COCA collected and analyzed, and we are implementing research-based strategies based on your guidance and consultation. Our partnership with COCA has strengthened the services that we provide to our school community, and helps us to be more effective educators.

I sincerely appreciate the work of this invaluable organization. I firmly believe that the work of COCA is vital to the strength of our community, and is critical to improve outcomes for children and families. Thank you."
