Danforth Educational Leadership Program alumnus Simón Iniguez was named as a K12Dive Rising Principal. The Rising Principals include school leaders across the U.S. who have taken a hands-on role in driving student success by establishing mentorship opportunities and systems of support, as well as expanding counseling services and parent knowledge. A member of the Danforth 31 cohort, Iniguez serves as an assistant principal at Evergreen High School in Burien, Wa. A colleague at Evergreen described Iniguez as a "critical architect" of the school's multi-tiered system of supports used to identify and assist struggling students ― a system that has contributed to rising graduation rates and a renewed focus on instruction.
