Six CCISD Elementary Campuses Named National Schools of Character
Posted on 05/10/2019
NSOCSix Clear Creek ISD elementary schools joined the ranks of Character.org’s highest distinction by being named 2019 National Schools of Character on May 10, 2019. Out of only 13 elementary schools in Houston and 88 schools nation-wide, Bauerschlag Elementary, Goforth Elementary, McWhirter Elementary, Ross Elementary, Stewart Elementary and Weber Elementary now join the growing list of schools honored by the organization.

Each year, Character.org certifies schools and districts at the state and national level that demonstrate a dedicated focus on character development, which has a positive effect on academic achievement, student behavior, and school climate. Criteria for selection are based on Character.org’s 11 Principles of Effective Character, which include providing students with opportunities for moral action, fostering shared leadership, and engaging families and communities as partners in the character-building effort.

Character.org is a national advocate and leader for character in communities including schools, families, workplaces, and sports. Since the School of Character program’s inception, the process has impacted nearly 3 million students, staff, parents, and other community members.

These schools will be honored at the 2019 National Forum to be held Oct 24-27, 2019 in Washington, DC.
