In MOT Charter School’s September 23rd Board of Directors meeting, Head of School Linda Jennings announced she was leaving her position at the end of this school year.
Mrs. Jennings also provided the Board with her letter of resignation; for which the Board was disheartened to hear. She will continue to serve as Head of School through the 2015-2016 school year and will further remain as a member of the Board of Directors. The Board will set up a Search Committee immediately and a plan for disseminating this news into the school community was discussed.
This comes at a crucial time for MOT as they are going through their charter renewal and they just opened up their high school. In terms of their renewal, the Charter School Accountability Committee had their initial meeting with MOT last week, and in a rare moment, the committee stated they did not need any additional information from MOT to proceed with the renewal process. MOT was recently cleared of any wrongdoing in an investigation from the Delaware State Auditor’s office. Linda Jennings has been with MOT since they opened in 2002, and has been the Head of School since the 2004-2005 school year.
