As the new school year approaches, there is movement afoot among Delaware charter schools. Some are coming from different states, while others are transferring between different Delaware charters.
William Bennett, a former principal from an elementary school in Media, PA has taken on the role of principal at Delaware Design Lab High School after a shocking exit and settlement from his former school.
Rebeccah Forrest, an assistant principal at EastSide Charter’s middle school is taking over the principal position at Gateway Lab School as Stacey Solomon heads over to St. Ann’s, a parochial private school.
At Providence Creek Academy, Chuck Taylor resumes his former role as head of school due to the bizarre illness Steve Esmond contracted in the Bahamas shortly before he was scheduled to start at PCA. Taylor left PCA in 2013, went to Campus Community for about six months, and returned to PCA to serve as interim head of school.
Dr. Evelyn Edney, former Dover High School principal, became the principal at Early College High School in Dover effective July 1st.
Former executive director Jack Perry of Prestige Academy in Wilmington has landed a new job as deputy chief of academic enrichment for the Philadelphia School District according to an article in Philly.com. Cordie Greenlea is the new executive director at Prestige after previous stints in Christina School District and most recently Delcastle Technical High School.
One thing you can say for Delaware charters, they certainly like to mix things up! As long as we don’t get more like Noel Rodriguez, Sean Moore, or Dr. Tennell Brewington.
