Keep Our Principals at SMS!

0 have signed. Let’s get to 200!


Principals in our district may be moved from one school to another without their input. South Middle School has had no fewer than 10 different administrators in the past three years.  We cannot expect to make or measure positive changes in our schools with a revolving door for administrators.  A 'substantial body of literature' includes in a description of 'schools that succeed despite poverty' a 'culture of collaboration among the teaching staff and administrators' (Corallo, C., 2001).  

Mr. Santiago and his team have begun working together to improve the academic and cultural outcomes for SMS. They have worked diligently to make positive changes at SMS.  If they are not allowed to continue together at SMS, parents cannot hope to see necessary improvements for our children. 

Please sign this petition to our school board and superintendent to leave the current team of principals in place at SMS.
