Our emphasis on supporting teachers, principals and staff in their work with the necessary resources was echoed by Stacey Wilson-Norman, who was promoted from area superintendent for elementary schools to the district's number-one academic official last October.
"We want to make sure that our teachers feel supported with the professional development they are receiving and that our principals have a responsive central office that's focused on the needs of our students," Dr. Wilson-Norman
"We have recently received our performance data, and we're using that information to intensify our support for our schools.
We're focusing on teaching and learning in order to rise to our new state standards."
Dr. Wilson-Norman joined DPS in 2000 as principal of Merrick-Moore Elementary School and is a former DPS Principal of the Year.
She earned her doctorate from Gardner-Webb University.
"Durham Public Schools
is a great place to be a part of," said Dr. Wilson-Norman
"Our goal is to make it an even better place, while keeping everything consistent for our students, educators and families."
