Channel 5: Parents fight to keep Allison Elementary principal

Allison parents Michelle Prewitt and Jennifer Suerkamp told Channel 5 news that word has leaked out this could be Principal Scott Counts’ last year on the job and they intend to fight to keep him. Today the two circulated a one-page letter urging other Allison parents to help them. Although Allison’s test scores remain low, disciplinary infractions have dropped from 271 in 2005 to 62 this school year. The BOE could decide whether or not to keep Counts when they meet in six weeks.
