Stewart Elementary School
Congratulations Principals! PDF Print E-mail


Mrs. Rhoda Harris (Principal, Stewart Elementary) and  Mr. Curt Mayer (Principal, Junior High)  have been selected in the first training ever to be Nationally Certified Administrators.  They are in a group of 50 in Iowa to be involved in this training. In order to be selected as a member of the first class of principals to participate in National Board Certification for Principals, principals applied for the class and had to meet three requirements of participation-degree, experience and licensure. After receiving applications for the class, a balanced sample of practicing principals encompassing a range of various characteristics, were selected.

National Board Certification for Principals is the first national certification program for accomplished school-based administrators. This certification defines and validates the requirements that identify accomplished, effective, and results-oriented principals while supporting excellence, motivation, and prestige within the profession.
The Principal Certification process is both interactive and systems-based to ensure that relevant site-based evidence is captured and that it is being demonstrated by the principal through everyday practical application.
