Question description

Read the following scenario and chart:

As the newly appointed principal of City Middle School, you have just left a meeting with the Assistant Superintendent of Curriculum and Instruction. Her parting words to you were, “We need to improve student passing rates on the state-mandated test.” In the meeting, you saw the passing rates for 2008 to 2010. Later, you are given the 2011 passing rates. The last principal, who was at the campus for 2 years, was not an instructional leader. As the principal, you have been charged with improving passing test rates.
