Agents of Change: Indiana school board overcomes leadership churn

Leadership churn — the revolving door of superintendents — is a problem that bedevils many school districts. An Indiana school board that overcame this challenge is the subject of February’s Agent of Change story in American School Board Journal.

In 2007, the Warsaw Community School District was losing yet another superintendent. It had seen five superintendents in eight years, and it showed in middling achievement for the 7,000-student district. The board knew something had to be done.

Six years a later, the board’s strategic plan and hard work, along with the hiring of Superintendent Craig Hintz, has boosted Warsaw’s achievement and its standing in the state.

Read the story of how they accomplished this on ASBJ.com and stay tuned for more school board success stories in upcoming issues.
