Behind the Story: New Leadership Hopes to Transform Indian Spring

Sep 5, 2014

In this edition of Behind the Story, I’m featuring my full conversation with Dr. John Jenkins, the new principal at Waco ISD’s Indian Spring Middle School.

I’m excited to be able to feature this full interview with Jenkins because he has a lot of plans for the school. And in the story we aired earlier this week on Indian Spring’s new leadership, I felt I was unable to capture everything Jenkins wants to do for this struggling campus in just 2 minutes and thirty seconds. 

Some of the highlights from this full interview include his focus on getting students ready for life after middle and high school, his efforts to find the right teachers and how he plans to improve the school’s performance on the rigorous STAAR test next year.
