Nearly 460 students attend James and 80 to 85 percent of those students are English Language Learners (ELL), said Nemeth. While some students have lived in the U.S. for several years, others just moved to the U.S., being exposed to American culture for the first time.

And by tackling the problems of the district from the ground level, the program needs not fear being mired in the tangles of the board and superintendent.
Just two days before the presentation at the Kauffman Foundation, Adams-Leavitt and Nemeth held court with Missouri Governor Bob Holden at his offices in Jefferson City.
Nemeth couldn't agree more -- which is why she'll tell anyone who'll listen how well the program has worked for her school."I'd like to see every school in Missouri getting out and getting to know students and parents," she says. | originally published: May 3, 2001
