Janesville school adds dean of students
Janesville School District officials appear to take student behavior, at Marshall Middle School, seriously. Administrators are hoping a dean of students helps improve discipline and boost test scores. Principal Synthia Taylor says the dean position will be non-administrative and address behavioral, discipline, and safety matters, lightening the workload for others to focus on academic performance. Marshall has the lowest student growth score on standardized state tests, among the districts three middle schools. Deans were also added to Craig and Parker high schools this year.
