Scenario Facts:

You have just been named the new principal of Sample Middle School. This is your first principal position, and you are replacing an administrator that was removed by the district. As you learn more about the school, you find the majority of teachers at Sample have 15 or more years experience and have been at the school for at least 5 years. The superintendent is confident you can turn Sample Middle around. She does not expect an immediate improvement and recognizes that change takes time. However, she expects to see some evidence of improvement in achievement, processes, and/or stakeholder perceptions by the end of the school year.

You know that Sample Middle School is a 6-8 school located in the small city of Sampleville, just sixty miles south of Metropolis. Sample enrolls approximately 780 students. However, their enrollment is decreasing as families are transferring their children outside of the district and to other schools in the district. Sample Middle has a high transiency rate, is 72% economically disadvantaged, and has a growing English Learner (EL) population. While the school has traditionally been somewhat lower performing, in recent years this trend has become alarming (see data chart below).
