School Specialty Student Planner

Message from Michael Josephson

Meet our new Planner partner – School Specialty!

School Specialty, offering Premier planners, makes the world’s best customized planners, with the most empowering content and planning features. Over 10 million students open a Premier planner every morning and jump-start their day.

Now you can get the world-renown CHARACTER COUNTS!® system integrated into your choice of student planners. Created exclusively by Premier, the 2019-2020 range is available for primary, elementary and secondary schools. It features the powerful planning tools that distinguish Premier planners PLUS practical CHARACTER COUNTS! content on every page.

Bring the CHARACTER COUNTS! program to every desk.

CHARACTER COUNTS! helps educators identify teachable moments to build character. A planner helps students identify learn-able moments to build their own character. It’s the tool that’s right there on their desk – at hand throughout the day as they consider their values and responses, actions and intentions. CHARACTER COUNTS! content inside Premier planners helps strengthen students’ character moment by moment, experience by experience, day by day.

With this new offering, the planning power of Premier meets the student development framework of CHARACTER COUNTS! We’ve carefully integrated the core principles into the design of every page. Each month a different character theme will prompt your students to expand their own values, beliefs and traits with specific learning outcomes. Each week will bring thought-provoking opportunities for self reflection on topics like resilience, self-discipline, empathy, perseverance, positivity and more. This sequence of content is designed to gradually build awareness, confidence and mastery of core character skills, and follows the CHARACTER COUNTS! Model Standards.
