"Ogden District High School Program Helps Students Take Control"
OGDEN - It's easy to deflect blame to others when life hasn't treated you too well. But a new program at Ogden High School is helping 10th graders learn to accept responsibility for their mistakes, relate better to others, and set goals for success.

Unlike other programs, there are no rewards offered in the program, except better grades, said Paula Kashiwaeda, the district official who trained for the program.

The program teaches students what happens when a negative situation occurs and how they can respond to it without losing control.

By the end of the semester, two students who had been on home study the previous year because of behavioral problems achieved 90 percent attendance and made the honor roll.

"All improved to some degree," Kashiwaeda said. She said she hopes to expand the program into the district's middle schools next year.
