THE MPLS CITIZENSHIP PROGRAM

In 1993, the elementary faculty at Price Laboratory School (PLS) at the University of Northern Iowa expressed concerns about students not transferring the level of respect they demonstrated in the classrooms to the more unstructured areas such as recess, lunchtime, and before and after school.  They decided to move forward with a proactive response to these civility concerns.  This school-wide character education initiative was titled the PLS Elementary Citizenship Program.  This program was rooted in a strong developmental and preventative philosophy.  Its main goal was to develop and maintain a cohesive community  of learners who valued and respected each other.   

FIRST AMENDMENT SCHOOLS NETWORK

In 2005, Price Laboratory School was one of the five schools in the United States selected to receive the First Amendment Project Schools Award.  These five schools joined a network of sixteen other schools previously selected to be in this project that is sponsored by the Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development (ASCD). 

MPLS TEACHERS ACHIEVED NATIONAL BOARD CERTIFICATION

The mission of the National Board is to advance student learning and achievement by establishing the definitive standards and systems for certifying accomplished educators, providing programs and advocating policies that support excellence in teaching and leading and engaging National Board Certified Teachers (NBCTs) and leaders in that process.  Six MPLS teachers were honored with this award.  

PRESIDENTIAL AWARD FOR MATHEMATICS AND SCIENCE TEACHING

The Presidential Awards for Excellence in Mathematics and Science Teaching (PAEMST) are the nation's highest honors for teachers of mathematics and science (including computer science). Awardees serve as models for their colleagues, inspiration to their communities, and leaders in the improvement of mathematics and science education.  Six MPLS teachers were honored with this award.
