Leadership and Character Programs

3 days ago

Leader in Me is a whole school improvement model that uses teaching practices to promote social and emotional learning for students in grades kindergarten through fifth grade. The leadership focus aims to shift mindsets with five core paradigms: everyone can be a leader, everyone has genius, change starts with me, educators empower students to lead their own thinking, and develop the whole person. The program provides teachers with a variety of practices that support leadership, culture, and academics. In addition to leadership development, character development is an essential part of a child’s education. It is not an add-on to the already full school day; but rather, it is an important ingredient that helps to shape the climate and the culture of schools. It is not merely education for life. It is life itself.

What are Choice Programs/ Schools? 

Choice Programs are innovative learning opportunities offered at each of our schools in order to give our students more options for specialized learning.  All of our schools offer great educational opportunities.  But, if there is a particular opportunity a student would like to experience at a school that is not in their attendance zone, we would like to give them that experience.  We feel this will increase student engagement, and will ultimately lead to higher achievement.

The following schools/programs are available district-wide: 

Arts Programs: Creedmoor Elementary 

Leadership and Character Programs: Wilton Elementary, Credle Elementary and Mt. Energy Elementary

Though there is a component of the Granville Early College and J.F. Webb Health and Life Science application that considers recommendations from teachers. 

 If I live in the attendance zone of a Choice School/program, do I need to do anything to participate? 

No.  Since you already live in the school's attendance zone, you will automatically participate in that school's program unless you choose to enroll in another Choice School/program.

Yes.  In most cases, a shuttle bus service is provided.

How are students selected for these schools/programs? Granville Early College High School accepts students through an application and random lottery process.  Students not selected through the lottery are put on a waiting list.  All of the other Granville County Public schools have an open enrollment period in which students and parents can sign up for the school/program they are interested in. 

If I transfer to one of these schools, how long am I committed to staying?  One school year. 

What are my options at the end of the school year? Your options are to:Commit to another year at your Choice School/program.Return to the school in your attendance zone.Transfer to another Choice School/program (provided the Choice School/program has space). 

What if there is more interest in a particular school than there is available space? 

If this occurs,  students wanting to transfer to the school will be selected by random lottery. 

If I enroll my student in an elementary program outside of my attendance zone, will my student be allowed to attend the middle school in that elementary school's feeder pattern? Yes.  Students will be allowed to attend the middle school in the feeder pattern of the elementary Choice School they attend.  However, a transfer request must be made when the student completes the final grade level at the elementary Choice School and at the beginning of each year thereafter.

Year Round Calendar Schools

Research shows that year-round calendar schools have a great impact on closing the achievement gap. Instead of having one long summer break, our year-round schools offer a calendar option that breaks the academic year up with several medium-sized (think two- or three-week) vacations. Students have the opportunity to attend enrichment and remediation programs during these breaks, called intersession. Families may also use the breaks as family vacation time.
