Raising the Bar: Changing a School Environment

Raising the Bar: Changing a School Environment

By Erick NaumannPrincipal, May/June 2011 When I came to Albert N. Parlin Elementary School four years ago, the school was a year or two away from being taken over by the state. As a brand new principal I was nervous, but I knew I had a wonderful opportunity to make a difference. I tried many new tactics and if they didn’t work, I scrapped them and tried something else. Today, Parlin has gone from being the district’s lowest scoring school to being its highest scoring school in English language arts and mathematics.
