Prescott schools look to boost students' character
PRESCOTT – Each school in the Prescott Unified School District is focusing on instilling six essential characteristics into its students as part of "CHARACTER COUNTS!" – one of the four goals board members set at their annual retreat in August.
These six characteristics, or "pillars," include fairness, respect, caring, citizenship, responsibility and trustworthiness. The other three goals included: improving student remediation, enrichment, accountability and study skills, easing students' transition as they enter middle school and high school and promoting respect and re-sponsibility.
