Leadership Academy Summit-The New Frontier of Character Education
Tue, June 13, 2017, 8:00 AM – 4:00 PM CDT
During the spring semester of the 2015-16 school year, the Klein ISD Police Department created a pilot program for an innovative character education program called Leadership Academy. The program, a collaboration of Klein ISD police officers and elementary counselors, identifies 20 students from each campus to participate in leadership building character education activities. The students, officers and counselors met weekly to discuss character lessons like, “Be respectful”, “Do the best you can” and “Don’t be discouraged”. The students then created lessons to share the Leadership Academy ideas with their classmates.
After the inaugural year, there were countless stories of students who had made large strides in their leadership qualities and behavior. Many teachers of academy students provided feedback of behavior changes and improved social interactions.
In May of 2016, the Leadership Academy students participated in a graduation ceremony at Klein Forest High School. 232 Students walked across the stage and received Leadership Academy graduation certificates in front of a standing room only crowd.
During the 2015-2016 pilot year, the program 12 schools participated. The program was so successful that for the 2016-2017 school year, all 31 Elementary campuses in Klein ISD are participating! What that means is we will now have 31 elementary campuses, 31 school counselors, approximately 620 students and 20 officers participating!
Please join us for the Leadership Academy Character Education and Training Summit. This year's theme: Leadership for All Students.
This conference for both School Police Officers and Elementary Counselors aims with the background of this unique character education program and to provide participants with tools and strategies to implement this program within your school.
