DC PUBLIC SCHOOLS TO REPLACE 18 PRINCIPALS

There are a number of principals leaving DCPS, as the District is replacing 18 of its public school principals, most of whom were hired by former Chancellor Michelle Rhee. DC Public Schools spokeswoman Melissa Salmanowitz declined to say how many of the 18 principals were retiring, resigning or being fired. The Washington Examiner reported the number of principals turning over in the school system.

  • 2008, 43 principals
  • 2009, 26 principals
  • 2010, 20 principals
  • 2011, 24 principals

A number of the schools facing new principals had their 2011 standardized tests lower compared with the previous year. Full Washington Examiner article here.
