Derek Pierce, principal of Casco Bay High School, was recently honored by the Portland Board of Public Education and Superintendent Xavier Botana for receiving the 2016 Silverberg Leadership Award from EL Education. The award, which comes with a $5,000 cash prize, is given to an exemplary school leader who has raised student achievement through deep implementation of EL Education practices.

The recognition took place at the school board’s Dec. 6 meeting. Botana made the following remarks:

“Derek received the award on Oct. 29 at EL Education’s National Conference in Detroit, Mich.

EL Education (formerly Expeditionary Learning), is a leading education nonprofit that is redefining student achievement in diverse communities across the country. Casco Bay High School is a credentialed school in the EL Education national network of schools, and for 2015-16 was again selected as a “Mentor School” within the network.

The Silverberg Leadership Award was created by EL Education Board Member Irwin Silverberg. He presented the award to Derek, recognizing him for his leadership and management skills that have resulted in the successful implementation of EL Education pedagogy and culture.

Congratulations, Derek, on this well-deserved honor!”
