One of our first test schools in 2016 was Longfellow Elementary. Dr. Jimmie Bullard had just arrived as the new principal and had a laser sharp focus on academic results. While she was a bit uncertain about how PrincipalsConnect could help her school, she soon had ideas and PC Adviser Judy Burge made Longfellow “her school.” Burge stocked the student reward store, helped paint the teacher’s work room and led focus group lunches with teachers. PC Adviser Michael Roane helped Bullard source teachers. Dr. Bullard and her team’s students had strong state test scores and she was recently awarded the “Extreme School Makeover” award from Kansas City Public Schools.
“We love working with Dr. Bullard because she is so responsive to our communication and gives us specific ideas of what she needs,” says Burge. Many kudos to the Longfellow team and Principal Bullard!
