"Williamsburg High School continues to set the pace for high school restructuring in Kentucky,"says Jerry Hodges, principal of the sixth- through twelfth-grade Williamsburg High School in Williamsburg. Under Mr. Hodges' leadership, Williamsburg High School has implemented the critical elements of restructuring: performance standards, authentic assessment, interdisciplinary teaching, business/agency alliances, block scheduling, self-directed teacher teams and technology. In his four years as principal, Mr. Hodges has joined forces with a dedicated team of educators to bring the school recognition as a "model school site" for curriculum innovation, a state and national Blue Ribbon School of Excellence and a regional Technology Innovation Center. Moreover, for two consecutive years, the school has held the highest ranking in the KIRIS (Kentucky Instructional Results Information System), a rigorous across-the-curriculum essay exam that assesses the success of Kentucky's secondary schools.
