Wylie Independent School District has been named a 2018 State School of Character by Character.org, a worldwide organization whose vision is “for people everywhere to be educated, inspired and empowered to be ethical and compassionate citizens.”
Wylie is the only district in Texas, and one of just five nationwide, to earn the honor.
Texas Elementary Principals and Supervisors Association (TEPSA) is the sponsor of the award in the state. Each year, Character.org and its state affiliates select schools and districts that demonstrate a dedicated focus on character development which has a true positive impact on academic achievement, student behavior and school climate.
WISD’s character education program “The Wylie Way” character education is now eligible for the National School of Character Award.
