The Quest for High Student Achievement-85%

Starting my 2nd full year as an Assistant Principal @ R.N. Harris Core Knowledge-Integrated Art Magnet School in Durham,NC We just missed our goal of 80% proficiency (77.8). This year we are keeping the same theme as last, “pushing it to the limit” with a new goal of 85% + high growth (60+ %). Our staff moral is high as we celebrated our successes and planned for the new school year. All staff has participated in Professional Development over the summer and are ready to implement new engaging strategies to help our children learn. I personally took part in several leadership PD‘s to improve student achievement. Here are two reports that link effective school leadership with high student achievement.
