Edmond Public Schools recognize Character Council of Edmond as Community Partner
Edmond Public Schools recognized the Character Council of Edmond as a Community Partner at its (2012) Nov. board of education meeting. Among the many ways the Council helps the district is by offering a half day of character education training every fall that is free to educators and parent volunteers who assist with their local school’s character development initiative. The Council picks up the cost for the training fees, materials and lunch.
“Character development plays such an important role in education and especially these days when we are trying very hard to instill in our students values and traits that contribute not just to their academic success but also to their emotional and physical well-being. Past recipients have included the Fine Arts Academy of Edmond, UCO, Mercy and the City of Edmond.”
