Grant Elementary Achieves LIM Lighthouse Status!

We are proud to announce that Grant Elementary has been named as a Leader in Me Lighthouse School by Franklin Covey! This recognition comes because the school has achieved outstanding results in school and student outcomes, by implementing The Leader in Me process with fidelity.  Grant Elementary has been named the sixth Lighthouse School in Iowa and is one of 316 Lighthouse Schools internationally.

The Leader in Me teaches leadership to students and creates a culture of student empowerment, based on the idea that every child can be a leader. The Leader in Me framework sets standards in the areas of culture, leadership, and academics.  Goal-setting and data-tracking processes clarify academic priorities and encourage students to take greater ownership over their education, all of which can impact academic progress.

The Lighthouse milestone is a highly regarded standard set by FranklinCovey that is attainable by every Leader in Me School. The attainment of the Lighthouse status represents a significant benchmark, and is evidence that all criteria of the framework have been met by a school at high levels. Applying for the Lighthouse milestone typically occurs three to five years after a school first implements The Leader in Me process.  The Lighthouse title is awarded by FranklinCovey to honor the attainment of a well-rounded leadership model. Lighthouse Schools serve as models of leadership and mentors to other schools.

Congratulations students and staff!!
