|Subject:||Resolution Recognizing Pennsbury School District|
|In the near future, we plan to introduce a resolution recognizing the Pennsbury School District in Bucks County for being named a State and National School District of Character in 2015 by Character.org, a national advocate and leader for the character education movement based in Washington, D.C.
The State Schools and Districts of Character program recognizes growth and excellence in the area of student character development through the 11 Principles of Effective Character Education framework.
In addition, six Pennsbury schools – Pennsbury High School, Eleanor Roosevelt Elementary, Makefield Elementary, Manor Elementary, Penn Valley and Walt Disney were named 2016 State Schools of Character. In 2015 seven Pennsbury – Afton, Edgewood, Fallsington, Oxford Valley, Quarry Hill, Pennwood Middle School and William Penn Middle School – were recognized as state and national Schools of Character.
Each Pennsbury school named in 2014 and 2015 was recognized as a National School of Character during the first year of application. This feat is unprecedented in the history of Character.org.
Please join us in recognizing and honoring Pennsbury School District by co-sponsoring this resolution.
