Pennell grapples with loss of a principal




Reporter Bill Hangley, Jr. covered the Renaissance Schools community meeting at Pennell Elementary on Tuesday for NewsWorks/WHYY and the Notebook.

Pennell is one of seven low-performing schools slated to become a Traditional Promise Academy. Popular principal Gina Steiner will be replaced. But District officials say the school will have more resources.

The Notebook and WHYY/NewsWorks are partnering to cover the Renaissance Schools initiative this school year, with stories shared on both websites. NewsWorks is a news website from WHYY that covers the Philadelphia region with a focus on Northwest Philadelphia - "powered by your concerns, questions, views, insights and stories."
