NASSP Names Rhode Island Administrator Principal Of The Year.

The Providence (RI) Journal (10/5, Borg) reports that the National Association of Secondary School Principals has named Alan Tenreiro of Cumberland High School in Cumberland Rhode Island the 2016 National Principal of the Year. Gov. Gina Raimondo attended a surprise assembly at the school, along with Sen. Jack Reed, Rep. David Cicilline, Rhode Island Education Commissioner Ken Wagner, and “numerous state and local officials, students, teachers, and Tenreiro’s family.” The Journal reports that the school “has seen increases in academic achievement, graduation rates, and the number of students gaining admission to some of the best colleges and universities in the country” on Tenreiro’s watch.
        Corey Mitchell writes at the Education Week (10/6) “District Dossier” blog that the school “doubled its Advanced Placement class offerings” under Tenreiro and “expanded the number of STEM courses to include pre-engineering, robotics, and a biotechnology pathway.” According to an announcement from NASSP, Tenreiro “has also established a system that allows for clearer teacher-student feedback, more uniform expectations for students and a focus on what students have learned.”
        Other media outlets that cover this award include WLNE-TV Providence, RI (10/6), THE Journal (10/5), and the Lincoln (RI) Valley Breeze (10/5).
