Leadership Helps Turn around a Troubled School
Sheppard, Von
Phi Delta Kappan, v94 n8 p32-36 May 2013
The author tells how he employed leadership skills to help turn around a failing school loaded with at-risk students. Dayton's Bluff Elementary School was one of the worst in St. Paul when Von Sheppard took over as principal in 2001. Changing the staff and attitudes at the largely low-income, minority majority school in a tough neighborhood helped raise achievement levels.
