Leadership Advancing Character & Culture in Schools
Leadership Advancing Character & Culture in Schools (LACCS), a professional development series, seeks to provide educators with a paradigm that can produce positive results in student behavior, social/emotional development, and academic performance. Creating and maintaining a meaningful culture of quality education and student development requires strong leadership and a principal with a vision to see the importance of developing morally responsible students. The series seeks to provide school leadership with tools to advance their vision and create viable, sustainable initiatives.
Each year LACCS will engage a new cohort of educators in monthly sessions, starting with a kick-off in August and commencing with graduation in May. At the end of the series, each school team will have developed a plan to infuse character education into their schools. To facilitate the plan development, the series combines input from:
- Local and national speakers
- Cutting edge, professional research
- Ongoing reflection - both individually and in circle time within a group
- Team work - at Alverno and on-site in schools
- On-site consultations with LACCS leaders.
