SUCCESS STORY

Reading test scores improve after district adopts Common Core literacy curriculum

Mt. Ephraim School District, Mt. Ephraim, New Jersey

 

Mt. Ephraim School District, a small district located in Camden County, New Jersey, just across the Delaware river from Philadelphia, hired Leslie Koller to be the new superintendent in January 2013. Koller was charged with addressing declining rigor in classrooms, low teacher morale, and new state requirements. And because the Common Core assessments were scheduled for 2014-2015, she had a year to turn the district around.
