From among the nation’s high schools, White Oak High School has been selected as one of only 13 FranklinCovey Models of High School Leadership.  The selection results in a partnership between FranklinCovey and White Oak that will complement the ongoing “Leader in Me” and “Lead” initiatives at two of White Oak’s feeder schools, Silverdale Elementary School and Hunters Creek Middle School.  Following a rigorous selection process, White Oak was chosen based on obvious teacher and administrative leadership at the school level, the wall-to-wall academy structure, an adaptable advisor/advisee program, district support and feeder school connections.  White Oak administrators and lead teachers are working with FranklinCovey to develop a series of leadership courses that will be the model for others across the nation.  Beginning with the 7 Habits in the Freshman Leadership Academy and continuing with “Finding your Voice,” “Helping Other to Find Their Voices” and a college/future readiness course, students will engage in leadership courses through their chosen academies (STEM, Human & Allied Health Sciences, Arts or Humanities) in 10th through 12th grade.  Students who complete the series will earn both individual course credentials and a leadership endorsement. 

While only 13 schools have been selected at this point, FranklinCovey representatives indicate that they plan to recognize 25 schools during this first year (2017-18).


Regarding the award, Dr. Barnes (WOHS principal) said, “We are honored to be selected to implement FranklinCovey’s High School Leadership Model.  It is a testament to the work of prior school leaders and honors the good work done each day by truly dedicated and talented teacher leaders.  I look forward to the opportunities this partnership opens for the students of White Oak High School.”
