READ AND CHOOSE A POPULATION….
Here is the story:
New Harbor North High School is a large public school in an urban neighborhood located in the northern part of the city. It is respected for its traditions of student and community involvement and academic preparedness. The student body is richly diverse in ethnicity and culture: 51% Asian descent, 33% African American, 7% Caucasian, 8% Latino, 1% American Indian, and a newer Arab student presence comprising less than 1% of the student population.
New Harbor North students spend their school years learning with, and about, students of various cultural and ethnic backgrounds. Thus, graduates, in addition to being high-caliber academically, receive another enriching educational experience—that of community—and learning to live and get along in a complex urban society.
New Harbor North High School has faced significant funding shortages during the past 4 years due to declines in local property tax collections and funds allocated by the state and the federal Department of Education, as well as donor attrition. As a result, teachers have seen salaries stagnate while their health care costs and class sizes have risen. Many senior teachers have taken early retirements, leaving the school with new teachers who lack experience with diverse groups of students. The most recent staff survey clearly shows demoralized teachers and staff, with a 15% decline in overall satisfaction, a 30% drop in support for the current leadership at the school and district levels, and a perceived lack of respect from students and the current principal. Although students are doing well academically, according to the School Report, they are reporting that the increased bullying and intolerance at school is largely being ignored by teachers.
New Harbor Quick Facts Leadership: New Harbor North High School has one Principal. The Principal is responsible for all hiring, teacher performance appraisal and reviews, and operational management of the school budget. The Vice Principal position is vacant due to a resignation. School Staff: The senior teacher/librarian position is vacant and being left unfilled to date. A vacant part-time physical education teacher position has been filled the past year by temporary staff. The staff/student ratio is 1:36. The guidance counselor/student ratio is 1:390. Special Education and Additional Support: The school offers support for ESOL students and students with special needs. Additional staff positions are funded through state funds for students with special needs. Per their state contract, additional staff does not participate in extra-curricular activities; they work only classroom and support hours. School fund-raising activities are committed to student-focused extra-activities.
