K-12 Education

Creating Cedar Valley Leaders of Tomorrow, Today

Education is a top priority in the Cedar Valley. School districts have made substantial investments in new state-of-the-art buildings, access to technology, and established critical business partnerships – preparing students for higher education and employment with an emphasis on real word training and the development of soft skills.

In addition to our great school districts, there is something else that impacts education in the Cedar Valley. Leader Valley, through Leader in Me, prepares Pre-K-12 students for life by providing them with the essential soft skills needed for a life of effectiveness and a competitive advantage in the workforce.

We believe this is achieved through high levels of community collaboration.

In cooperation with local businesses, Leader Valley provides financial and administrative support to The Leader in Me® schools in six school systems.

The Leader in Me is a FranklinCovey’s whole-school transformation process designed to teach leadership and life skills.

This initiative is currently implemented in 24 Cedar Valley schools!
