26 days after the last year ends, DCPS releases new principal list.

At the recent Tiger Cope candidate forum one of the questions was about principal changes. There have been so many and they were concerned.

I asked to see the principal last week and was told they weren’t putting it out yet because there was still some TBD.

With retirements, moves and promotions we should expect to see about a ten percent turnover rate. DCPS just about doubled that.

It’s my thought replacing a fifth or the principals is to much especially during a pandemic. I would also like to see the way principals are replaced/changed so that the SAC, PTA and shared decision making committees are included. Maybe if we involved more people who would be working directly with them, we wouldn’t be replacing them with such an alarming regularity.
