Kentucky Valley Education Cooperative is one of 22 recipients nationwide who have been awarded a Project Prevent grant from the United States Department of Education to help students who have been exposed to violence or trauma. This grant began in October, 2014, allowing funding to include seventy participating schools over the course of the 5 year funding life.

KVEC has chosen Ripple Effects, an award winning Social Emotional Learning technology based software system to anchor this project.  Ripple Effects not only addresses trauma and violence, but operates on the three tier intervention model offering content to benefit each and every student.

KVEC teamed up with Ripple Effects to develop a new interface option for the Teen software.  This new interface reflects images of rural life that students outside of  urban and suburban areas can identify with.  Regional students from southeastern Kentucky partnered their talents in the areas of graphics, photography, acting, and voice-over narration to help bring this new interface to life.
