Hats Off to Colorado Principal of the Year, Jenny Passchier

Jenny PasschierAt the 95 Percent Group, we have known for a long time that Jenny Passchier, Principal of Crawford Elementary School, was a trailblazer at her school. Her ability to effectively impact student achievement made us all stand up and take note, and clearly, the experts agree. We are thrilled to ask you to join us in congratulating Jenny Passchier for being named National Distinguished Principal of the Year for Colorado.

For the past two years, Passchier has engaged 95 Percent Group to support her strategy of focusing on standards-based teaching. Since she arrived at Crawford, Passchier and her staff have used 95 Percent Group products and services to help them improve student achievement. Crawford Elementary achieved the highest overall proficiency increases of all elementary schools in Aurora, based on the 2014 TCAP (Colorado’s state assessment) scores. Because of this diligence and dedication, the Colorado Association of School Executives (CASE) named her the 2015 National Distinguished Principal for Colorado. 

Congratulations, Jenny! Well done.
