From the Principal

{title}
I can’t tell you how proud I am of the leadership our students are beginning to display. We are already seeing how students view themselves and how their role at school is changing. They are becoming leaders to others and more importantly, leaders in their own lives.
I am also very proud of the way we have sustained academic progress this past school year. For the first time ever, The Cleveland Academy of Leadership, received a Palmetto Silver Award, for attaining high levels of performance and high rates of growth by the State Department of Education and the South Carolina’s Education Oversight Committee; it is a glowing testament to our students’ hard work and also to the determination and creativity of our teachers, staff, and community and business partners.

The Cleveland Academy of Leadership Receives State Award

The Cleveland Academy of Leadership Receives State Award
The State Department of Education and the South Carolina’s Education Oversight Committee has recognized The Cleveland Academy of Leadership with the Palmetto Silver Award for the 2013-14 school year.
The Palmetto Awards program honors schools for attaining high levels of performance and high rates of growth.
Superintendent Russell W. Booker commented, “We are very proud of the way all our schools have sustained academic progress over this school year. I am especially proud of the students at the Cleveland Academy of Leadership for their academic growth; it is a glowing testament to their hard work and also to the determination and creativity of the school staff, parents, and community partners.”
The Palmetto Gold and Silver awards program was created under the 1998 Education Accountability Act. The award criteria were developed by the EOC, and are based on the absolute and improvement ratings assigned to each school on the 2013 report cards, which were released in November. Awards are given to schools that dramatically improved student academic achievement between 2012 and 2013.

Digital CitizenShip

Digital CitizenShip
Have you ever wondered whether all the time your child is spending online, watching TV, texting their friends, and playing video games is good for them? I know I have!
That’s why at The Cleveland Academy of Leadership we are making a commitment to teach students how to be good digital citizens.
We’ll explore topics like cyberbullying, online privacy, and creative rights and responsibilities. With strong digital citizenship skills, your child will be able to take advantage of all the wonderful opportunities of technology and learn how to handle the more challenging issues that they may experience.
The curriculum and resources we are using were developed by Common Sense Media, a national nonprofit organization. I encourage you to check out the free parent resources on Common Sense Media’s website (www.commonsense.org) so you can stay up-to-date on all things digital.
Please call on us at any time if we can do anything to help you or your children learn how to be safe, smart and responsible digital citizens.
