Scenario and Data: The new superintendent has transferred you from a position as an assistant principal at the local high school to become principal of East
Apple Upper Elementary School, a low performing school. You are replacing a very popular principal who was removed by the new superintendent in an effort
to change school performance. Parents have already formed an online group advocating for your removal.
After doing research on the school and comparing your school to state data, you have compiled a summary report of the ELA and Math data (see below).
The five performance levels are (1) minimal, (2) basic, (3) passing, (4) proficient, and (5) advanced.
Question Prompt: Your response needs to address the following:
1. What trends do the data show? Overall? ELA? Mathematics? 2. What action steps would you take prior to the start of the school year AND during the
school year? Prioritize your steps WITH theoretical backing. 3. Sharing how you will incorporate other stakeholders outside of the school community in your
action steps. REMEMBER THE CURRENT COMMUNITY CLIMATE.
