June 4, 2012 - PRLog -- ROCKPORT, Maine – Independent school leaders from throughout Colorado will learn how to integrate ethics into their decision-making and communication with all stakeholders at a “Tone-at-the-Top” seminar presented by Paula Mirk, director of education at the Institute for Global Ethics (IGE).

The school administrators are members of the Association of Colorado Independent Schools (ACIS). Mirk’s presentation is scheduled for June 14, 2012, at the Mountain Thunder Lodge in Breckenridge, Colorado.

The ACIS seminar will address the articulation and analysis of shared values that are in conflict in real-life, right-versus-right ethical dilemmas and how to build the conditions necessary to support a school’s culture of integrity, using IGE’s Ethical Literacy® best practices.

The session will also explore IGE’s “Schools of Integrity” research drawn from schools known for their successful balance of academic rigor and attention to the ethical development of young people. From this research, seminar participants will be able to rate their own schools and explore the strengths and needs this exercise reveals.

“ACIS schools educate future leaders who must develop the capacity for ethical decision making,” said Lee Quinby, ACIS executive director. “This workshop will complement efforts to make 21st century skills a driving focus of our educational programs. Those skills include: critical thinking and problem solving, communication, collaboration, creativity, and cosmopolitanism.”  

The Association of Colorado Independent Schools is a nonprofit organization dedicated to the continuous improvement of member schools by providing accreditation, professional development, and advocacy services. It is affiliated with the National Association of Independent Schools (NAIS). For more information, visit:
