Stride With Pride

WSKG in partnership with Broome/Tioga BOCES (Board of Cooperative Educational Services) coordinated a program called Stride with Pride. The program involved third, fourth, and fifth grade students. Each student was given a pedometer, logbook, and instructions on how to use them. Broome/Tioga BOCES distributes pedometers, holds an information workshop for the participating classroom teachers, provides curriculum to expand upon the use of the pedometers in the classroom, and helps evaluate the data gathered. Binghamton University's Decker School of Nursing students will evaluate the data gathered by classrooms. Binghamton University also provides curriculum that can be used in the classroom with the pedometers.
