Turning around Maple Shade Middle School: A Principal's Initial Reform Efforts
Salmonowicz, Michael J.; Levy, Melissa K.
Journal of Cases in Educational Leadership, v12 n1 p26-37 2009
This case was written for use in courses dealing with school administration, specifically those related to organizational change, school improvement/turnaround, and the principalship. It explores a veteran principal's first year as a "turnaround specialist" in a low-performing middle school, where she works with a sense of urgency to achieve an increase in student achievement. Students reading the case should assume the role of the principal as they analyze and reflect on changes made during year one and determine a course of action for year two. (Contains 1 figure, 4 tables and 1 note.)
