Westwood Elementary News: Local School Awarded “Lighthouse School” Designation

Greenwood’s Westwood Elementary School has received an award three years in the making. The award was made public at a June 3rd assembly. The “Lighthouse School” Award is based upon high academic achievement, the achievement criteria established by Franklin Covey and extensive review by the Franklin Covey Lighthouse Team who reviewed the school’s goals, school climate and school leadership.

This was a 3 year process led by the Student Lighthouse Team and Staff Lighthouse Team to guide the school through a transformation from teacher centered leadership to student centered leadership.

The Westwood goal is to empower students to realize their leadership potential and find their voice as citizens of the 21st Century.

Westwood is the 83rd school in the world to achieve this honor from the Franklin Covey Foundation. The process involved 813 students, 104 staff members and countless parents and involved community members according to Westwood Principal Rene Foster and Assistant Principal Kim McGill.
