    Hi Jane,

    I work with Jo Ann Freiberg at the CT State Department of Education. We are looking to order 150 of your Creating Emotionally Safe Schools. Are you able to accept a Purchase Order for them? What would be the cost for 150 books that we will use to give to school staff who attend the Improving School Climate trainings that the CSDE provides?
