Gimenez, Suzanne L.
School Administrator, v69 n7 p22-25 Aug 2012
The author's journey as a strategic staffing principal in the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools has been one of ups and downs, scary turns and some great success for students. It began in May 2008 when she was asked to move to Devonshire Elementary School with marching orders to "turn the school around." Because of its failure to meet annual yearly progress for four years, Devonshire had been designated a State of North Carolina Restructuring School. In this article, the author details how she has used strategic staffing to turn around the floundering school in Charlotte, North Carolina.
