January 10, 2019 -  For the second year in a row, the Demopolis City School System has a school selected as a school of distinction by the Council of Leaders in Alabama Schools.  This year, Westside Elementary has been selected because of their student leadership program (Leader In Me) which is in its second year of implementation.

The CLAS Banner School program was created in 2001 to recognize schools in Alabama that showcase outstanding programs and service to students.  This year 160 schools were nominated for this recognition and 24 were selected as finalist.  The 24 exemplary schools will be recognized at a luncheon on February 25th in Prattville, at which the CLAS Banner School from each of the 8 State Board District’s will be announced.
