Baldwin County Schools Awarded $500K Grant to Implement the Leader in Me® Program

The Baldwin County School District has been awarded a three-year grant of over $500,000 from the Georgia Department of Education and the FranklinCovey Foundation to implement the renowned Leader in Me® program across the district. This initiative will involve all students in Pre-K through grade 12.

The Leader in Me® program is designed to empower students with leadership and life skills, aiming to transform school culture and enhance academic achievements. Students are empowered to lead others and themselves to become the next generation of change-makers and problem-solvers. Through this partnership, Baldwin County Schools will receive comprehensive training, coaching, and materials over the next three years, impacting thousands of students and staff.

The Leader in Me Program works to build the personal and professional capacity of the entire school staff so that they are equipped to be leadership role models for students. According to FranklinCovey, leadership is more than a position or title. When educators believe that everyone possesses unique strengths and has the ability to be a leader, they can help students develop mindsets, behaviors, and skills to succeed both in school and beyond.

Dr. Noris Price, Superintendent of Baldwin County Schools, stated, "We are thrilled to bring the Leader in Me® program to our schools. This program aligns with our mission and commitment to providing students with essential leadership and life skills, which will assist them in achieving their full potential."

FranklinCovey will provide ongoing support and resources, including professional development for teachers and staff, to ensure the program's successful integration and sustainability.
