Interview: National Title I Distinguished School - Claiborne Fundamental Magnet Elementary School
Principal Ellen Lewis Hall and Counselor Monica Howell from Claiborne Fundamental Elementary School in Shreveport, Louisiana discuss some of the programs they have used that contributed to the success of their school. Claiborne was selected in 2014 as a National Title I Distinguished School. In Principal Hall's words: "Schools must be established based on the needs of the population that they are expected to serve. I always begin with my observation of the organization and management of the school. Where there is no order, the best teaching and learning can not take place. As a new principal, it was my goal to observe all of the wonderful things in the school that were meeting the needs of the students. Once those things were identified, I focused on the things that needed to change immediately so that students could be more successful in school. This kind of change must be systematic and consistent. It must begin with the administrative team and teachers, but it must include all stakeholders including other employees, students, parents and the actively involved community. "
