“We created the new Lighthouse School of Academic Distinction to recognize Leader in Me Schools that have both met the rigorous requirements necessary to achieve and maintain Lighthouse School Certification and shown exemplary academic growth or proficiency as measured by state accountability standards,” wrote Sean Covey in his letter to principals. “While we recognize that Leader in Me is only one of many factors that affect academic achievement, we are pleased to acknowledge and celebrate your achievement.”
The schools will receive their banners in January. Be sure to congratulate the principals of these schools who have dedicated their efforts to supporting The Leader in Me.
