dLACE scholars will learn to use character education essentials as part of school improvement practices districtwide to ensure a comprehensive, intentional, and proactive approach to student development. This includes learning the skills to implement, lead and sustain a character education process throughout their district that, when done with efficacy, positively impact academic performance, school culture and climate, referral rates, and teacher job satisfaction.
