News from Shoreline Schools
Lori Longo, principal of Kellogg Middle School in Shoreline, has been selected as the Kingco North Regional Distinguished Principal of the Year by the Association of Washington Middle Level Principals.
The Kingco North region of the Association of Washington School Principals (AWSP) includes the Shoreline, Northshore and Lake Washington School Districts. Regional nominees are advanced for consideration as Washington Principal of the Year.
Longo has been principal at Kellogg for 10 years and during that time has increased test scores, established a set of building and classroom interventions to improve student learning, and been a nationally recognized leader in the implementation of technology in the classroom.
Some of the innovations she has initiated as principal at Kellogg include a tutorial period each day to provide targeted assistance to struggling learners; a mandatory homework lunch program designed to insure that students not only learn academically, but also be accountable for success; an after-school activity/study time called "Hang Time" co-sponsored by the school, YMCA, and cities of Shoreline and Lake Forest Park; and full integration of technology into every classroom, including interactive whiteboards, document cameras, sound systems and laptop computers.
Kellogg was previously honored with the 2009 Washington Achievement Award by the Superintendent of Public Instruction and the Intel and Scholastic School of Distinction Award in 2006.
