This documentary chronicles the work of turnaround principals Gloria Ervin of New San Juan High School in Citrus Heights, and Roxanne Mitchell of Foothill Ranch Middle School in Sacramento, CA, and their dedication to improving their schools’ climate and culture to generate student success and academic achievement. Both of these schools are in vulnerable neighborhoods in the Sacramento area, with a high incidence of gang activity and violence.

The video features in-depth interviews with both principals, plus commentary from teachers and students, that identify what it took to turn around two underperforming schools. The principals discuss what their schools were like before they arrived, the challenges they faced, and the strategies they used to improve the situation.
