CEC provides funding for a character education curriculum being implemented in each of the elementary schools within the CEC service area. The curriculum from Character@HEART is based on character traits established by Alabama for schools. Character@HEART is a non-profit organization in Montgomery. The character curriculum is provided at no expense to the schools or teachers.
During the 2014-2015 school year, Character@HEART representatives conducted teacher workshops to train at least one person from each school intensively on specific character traits. These Character Coordinators return to their individual schools to distribute and train their faculty on the character traits that were to be introduced during the next six weeks.
