Friday, April 23, 2004 | 12:00 a.m. CDT; updated 5:59 p.m. CDT, Saturday, July 12, 2008

Vickie Robb will be the new principal of West Boulevard Elementary School, the school chosen by the district as the new model school to help with achievement disparities.

Robb is currently the principal of Russell Boulevard Elementary School, a position she has held since 1990.

"We are excited to have Vickie Robb serve as an educational leader in the Columbia School District's efforts to more effectively meet the needs of all students," said Superintendent Phyllis Chase in a press release.

The school will be restructured to address achievement gaps by increasing instructional time, integrating core curriculum, implementing a new staff and encouraging more parental involvement.

The principal will choose the new staff, which will work with parents to create the parameters of the model school.
