Molly Howard's School of HOPE
Lile, Sarah J.
Principal Leadership, v8 n5 p32-37 Jan 2008
The 2008 MetLife/NASSP High School Principal of the Year, Molly Howard, was working as a special education administrator in another part of the county when Jefferson County (GA) High School was being constructed in fall 1994. It was to be the only high school in the county, the consolidation of two high schools. In this article, the author describes how Howard leads Jefferson County High School and how she has inspired her community by creating the "School of HOPE," which aims to accomplish three objectives: (1) increase graduation rates; (2) raise achievement on state tests; and (3) create a personalized, caring school community.
