Daphne Heflin, Principal, Sunflower County Consolidated School District

“Partnering with Bailey Education was a great step for Lockard Elementary School. At the onset of our partnership, Bailey team members asked, “What’s needed?” Throughout our partnership we revisited the question regularly; our collaborative cycle was to communicate about a need, address it, then communicate about and address other needs as they manifested themselves through data. The collaborative cycle was important because at Lockard we worked toward a vision and wanted to meet goals and only by meeting needs would we succeed. The Bailey team asked questions, provided information, responded quickly to needs and remained focused on our decisions about who to support and how. The Bailey team exhibited a true desire to help, and Bailey team members became Lockard team members whenever they stepped foot on our campus.”
