The Senate and House Interim Committees on Education reported the reason for the Mena Middle School was selected was for repeatedly performing higher than their demographics indicated they should.
The study will focus on resources that are available to the school and how they use them to best serve the students. This will include examining: school staffing, curriculum and instruction strategies, district spending on instructional materials and technology, school culture, community engagement and leadership approach.
The Mena Middle School principal is Cliff Sherrer. The middle school’s leadership consists of Clifton Sherrer, Todd Coogan and Leilani Rose.
