Ms. Amy Jordan, who currently serves as the Principal at Bob and Betty Courtway Middle School in Conway Public Schools, has been appointed as Executive Director of Secondary School Performance.

Ms. Jordan will begin this role on July 1, 2022.

The responsibility of the Executive Director of Secondary School Performance is to provide direct supervision and evaluation of school-based principals at our middle and high schools. In addition, Ms. Jordan will be responsible for implementing the district’s mission to improve student achievement at every secondary school through leadership coaching, professional  development, and support to school-based administrators with all aspects of teaching and learning.

Ms. Jordan has served as Principal at Courtway Middle since 2017. She rose to Principal after having been the school’s Assistant Principal for seven years. Her career in education began as an English Teacher in the Mount Vernon-Enola School District, where she earned Teacher of the Year in the 2000-2001 school year. Her career then took her to Greenbrier Junior High School where she taught English for three years. After a year in the Pulaski County Special School District, she went to Conway Public Schools as a Literacy Coach and Specialist.

“I am ready to get to work,” said Ms. Jordan. “I am excited about this opportunity to collaborate
with passionate teachers and administrators who all support students and want to do everything they can to make sure students thrive,” she said.

Ms. Jordan earned a Master of Science Degree in Education from the University of Central
Arkansas and a Bachelor of Arts Degree in English from Hendrix College.

“Ms. Jordan has an impressive set of skills,” said Dr. Gregory J. Pilewski, Superintendent of the
North Little Rock School District. “I look forward to collaborating with her to improve student
outcomes in our district.”

The Executive Director of Secondary School Performance is one of the reorganized Central
Office Administration positions in the North Little Rock School District, which Dr. Pilewski
proposed in the NLRSD Central Office Administration Reorganization Plan (Phase I) and
presented at the Regular Board Meeting in February. The plan was created to improve the level
of services and support to school leaders and classroom teachers to drive continuous
improvement in student learning.
