Dekaney Named Model School by International Center for Leadership in Education

July 19, 2011

HOUSTON – Dekaney High School in Spring ISD has been selected as one of 15 model high schools for 2011 by the International Center for Leadership in Education. The selected schools shared their best practices at the 19th Annual Model Schools Conference June 26 – 29 in Nashville.

“Dekaney High School is proud to have been selected as a 2011 International Center for Leadership in Education Model School. The ICLE designation as a model school is just another step in realizing our district and campus vision. Our school motto is ‘Leading the Way to Excellence,’ and we strive to do that every day,” said Delic Loyde, Dekaney principal.

The Model Schools Conference is the nation’s premier event for K-12 education reform. Each year, the conference attracts thousands of educators, who come to learn about exemplary elementary, middle, high school and career and technical education programs.

Model schools are selected annually based on high student achievement in all subgroups, providing every student with a rigorous and relevant curriculum, personalized instruction, increased student learning time, parent and community involvement, use of data to make instructional decisions, and other best practices. Case studies on Dekaney High School and the other model schools serve as a resource for educators and policymakers.

The process of identifying and analyzing schools is part of a joint initiative of the Successful Practices Network and the International Center and is based on the Learning Criteria to Support 21st Century Learners.

The International Center for Leadership in Education, established in 1991 and located in Rexford, N.Y., is one of the most influential education consulting companies in America. It is best known for identifying and disseminating successful practices to assist all students in achieving higher standards. Willard R. Daggett, Chief Executive Officer of the International Center and his team of consultants have assisted numerous state education agencies and hundreds of schools and districts in their improvement initiatives.
