Lakota Community Conversation Tackles Character Education on April 21 Join the Character Council of West Chester/Liberty

Lakota Local Schools and the Board of Education, in partnership with the West Chester Liberty Community of Character Committee, will host its next Community Conversation on the topic of “Character Education: A Community Task.” The meeting is open to the public and will take place on Thursday, April 21 from 7-8:30 p.m.

Across all grade levels, character development is a cornerstone of youth education. Some might argue that it’s as practical and essential a skill as anything taught in any core subject area. It’s literally the handbook for building strong relationships and leading by example, which serves students for a lifetime.

Our schools approach character education as another pillar of the curriculum. But raising our children to be stewards of good character is the job of an entire community.

By bringing together school leaders, staff, parents, students, business professionals and community leaders, the goal is to have a productive discussion about how we as a community, and in partnership with our schools, can strengthen our approach to youth-centric character development. What can we do better together than apart?

Lakota’s Community Conversation program is a series of meetings to connect school leaders with the larger community with the collective purpose of better serving our students.  

Please join us for this important discussion at the Raymond James offices at 8859 Cincinnati-Dayton Road. Please enter through the main entrance and go down the stairs to the conference room. Questions and RSVPs may be directed to Lakota’s Media & Community Relations Department at lauren.boettcher@lakotaonline.com.
