Warren County Public Schools is pleased to announce that Rockfield Elementary has earned the prestigious Lighthouse status, bringing WCPS’ total number to seven, which is the largest number for any school district in the Commonwealth. This is the highest honor attainable through the Leader In Me initiative. In order to achieve this recognition, Rockfield Elementary School had to pass a rigorous Lighthouse Review by meeting more than 120 criteria in nine focus areas established by the Franklin Covey “Leader In Me” organization.
“WCPS strives to serve as a model in how we educate our students and it is an honor to receive this special recognition,” stated Superintendent Rob Clayton. “Our commitment to student learning and student opportunity has once again set our school district apart, and I am pleased to see our students benefit from this outstanding work on behalf of our educators. I am so proud of Principal Cassady and the Rockfield Elementary staff for their commitment to excellence by infusing the 7 habits into their daily work. Their passion for building student leaders will undoubtedly have a life-long impact on our students beyond their K-12 experience in WCPS.”
In 2014 Briarwood Elementary and Natcher Elementary became the first two schools in the state of Kentucky to earn the Lighthouse achievement, and WCPS continues to lead the state as five additional schools have also achieved the highest honor. Alvaton Elementary and Plano Elementary earned the distinction in 2015, followed by North Warren Elementary in 2016 and Cumberland Trace Elementary, Rockfield Elementary in 2017.
