In addition to being named among 24 “Schools of Distinction” by CLAS, Leeds High School was recently recognized as a Banner School by the organization.
CLAS, or the Council for Leaders in Alabama Schools, held a luncheon in Prattville where Leeds High School was among eight schools to be named a Banner School.
“The CLAS Banner School program was created in 2001 to recognize schools in Alabama that showcase outstanding programs and service to students,” said a statement by CLAS. “Each school was nominated for this award by their superintendent with 160 school programs nominated statewide.”
Leeds High School was the winner in District 7.
“Congratulations to these wonderful Alabama public schools which provide excellent examples of the significant learning opportunities taking place in public education in Alabama. Further, the stakeholders at every school are to be commended for striving for excellence daily,” said Vic Wilson, Ed.D., executive director of CLAS.
