02/22/10 Why Isn't Greenwich Time Cub Reporter Colin Gustafson Reporting That Stacey Gross Was Named CT Middle School Principal Of The Year!

WESTERN MIDDLE SCHOOL PRINCIPAL – STACEY GROSS

NAMED CONNECTICUT MIDDLE SCHOOL PRINCIPAL OF THE YEAR!

Dr. Stacey Gross has been named the 2010 Connecticut Middle School Principal of the Year by the Connecticut Association of Schools (CAS). She will be honored by CAS at an awards ceremony in Portland, CT and at the National Association of Secondary School Principals (NASSP) - Principal’s Institute in Washington, D.C. in the Fall of 2010. Her application will also be submitted for consideration in NASSP’s 2011 National Middle School Principal of the Year program.

Superintendent of Schools, Dr. Sidney A. Freund said, “Stacey Gross is an exemplary Principal - an effective and collaborative leader, a supportive colleague, and above all, a passionate educator committed to ensuring that every student succeeds in school. She really “gets” middle school students. We are delighted that she has been selected by CAS for this well-deserved recognition as the State’s Middle School Principal of the Year – I couldn’t agree more with their wise decision.”

As Principal of Western Middle School, Dr. Gross has led the school in increasing achievement for all students, and in closing gaps in achievement among student sub groups. This year, she guided the staff in an exploration of the International Baccalaureate Middle Years Program, resulting in a staff decision to adopt the program. She has worked with the Western staff to create a comprehensive approach to increasing academic achievement and improving the social-emotional learning experience for all students. This plan resulted in an increase in student engagement and achievement, an increase in participation in extra-curricular activities, and a dramatic reduction in disciplinary issues. She has been instrumental in developing and implementing numerous classes and programs designed to address the specific needs of students; including a collaboratively taught ESL/Reading English class, a “Structured Reading” support class, Peer Mentoring and Mediation programs, a Student Council, and an Advisory program.

In addition to her outstanding contributions to the school, Dr. Gross works at the District level to support improvement efforts as Lead Principal training and advising first, second and third year Principals; as a member of the District Data Team developing the Strategic Improvement Plan for the District; and as a Tri-Chair of the Vision Implementation Team ensuring that the Vision of the Graduate becomes a reality. Under her leadership, Western Middle School has been the recipient of the CAS Exemplary School Climate Award, the Governor’s Summer Reading Challenge Award in 2007 and in 2008, and the Connecticut Challenge to Educational Citizenship Award.

She participated on the high school’s New Teacher Orientation Committee, the NEASC Steering and Visitation Committees and the Ninth Grade Transition Committee. Additionally, she participated on multiple district-wide committees including the Closing the Achievement Gap Design Team, the Administrative Redesign Team and the International Baccalaureate Committee.

Western's Gross named state's top middle school principal

By Colin Gustafson, STAFF WRITER
Published: 09:37 p.m., Monday, February 22, 2010

The leader of an academically struggling middle school has been named the state's top middle school principal this year for her efforts to boost achievement over the past four years.


Western Middle School Principal Stacey Gross has been named the 2010 Connecticut Middle School Principal of the Year by the educational nonprofit group Connecticut Association of Schools, school officials said Monday.


"I am thrilled for her," said Western PTA President Celia Fernandez. "If anyone deserves it, it's Stacey."


The accolade puts Gross in the running for the 2011 National Middle School Principal of the Year award.....

....."Greenwich is a very nice area, but it certainly has its challenges, and many are in that (school)," said Packtor, who also said the panel recognized Gross for her efforts to use "best practices" from other schools......

....Long the lowest performer among these three middle schools, Western has made big gains on state achievement in math, reading and writing since Gross took over in 2006. Attendance has also increased, while behavioral infractions have declined under her watch.....

....If chosen as a finalist for the national middle-school principal award, given by the National Association of Secondary School Principals, Gross could receive $2,500 to spend on school programs.


Gross will be honored for the state award at several events this fall.....
