Leadership Advancing Character & Culture in Schools

Leadership Advancing Character & Culture in School

Leadership Advancing Character & Culture in Schools (LACCS) produces positive results in student behavior, social/emotional development, and academic performance. Creating and maintaining a meaningful approach to character education requires strong leadership and a principal with a vision to see the importance of developing morally responsible students.

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. This initiative combines input (speakers, workshops, experiences, readings) with ongoing reflection (both individual and circle time with the whole group), team work (at Alverno and on-site in the schools), and on-site consultation with LACCS leaders. At the end of the program, each school team will have developed a plan to infuse character education in their schools.
