The Alliance for Excellent Education and the National Association of Secondary School Principals (NASSP) held a discussion about the role of school leaders in creating a culture of high expectations that will help all students graduate from high school ready for college and a career. The event focused on the efforts principals are leading as schools transition to implement college- and career-ready standards. The MetLife Foundation–NASSP Breakthrough Schools project identifies, showcases, and recognizes middle and high schools that are achieving at high levels or dramatically improving student achievement while serving a large number of students who are most at risk of dropping out.
The panel discussion highlighted three schools—Clarke Central High School (GA); Scott Morgan Johnson Middle School (TX); and Trenton R I-X High School (MO)—that have been recognized by the Breakthrough Schools project for exemplifying the core areas of collaborative leadership, personalization, and access to a rigorous and differentiated curriculum for all students.
The Alliance for Excellent Education and NASSP offers a special thank you to U.S. Senator Tom Harkin, honorary host of this event.
