A Message From Dr. Betts
Dear George Washington High School Community,
The school has experienced a change in leadership during this school year with the goal of improving climate, culture and instructional opportunities for students. Interim Principals Francine Deal and Christine Black have been in place since December and have done a nice job assisting students, staff and making needed adjustments to the school. However, they are only available to serve until the end of this month. As such, an experienced high school principal has been chosen to lead the school for the remainder of this school year.
Ms. Susan Thompson has been appointed as Acting Principal. Ms. Thompson has led several schools and most recently works for the District as a principal leadership coach. She has experience leading curriculum and instruction initiatives. Ms. Thompson is already at the school working with Ms. Deal and Ms. Black to ensure a seamless transition until her official start date of Monday, February 29, 2016.
Please also note that the process for selecting the permanent principal of the school is well under way. The position was advertised nationally and locally. Over 30 applicants applied for the position. A school-based team is working on your behalf in this regard. This team includes a parent, students, teachers, an expert in Career and Technology Education, and others.
Finally, there is a parent meeting on Wednesday, March 16, 2016 at 6:00 PM in the school library. You will have an opportunity to meet Ms. Thompson and receive important information from the Home and School Association, student leadership, and others.
Please welcome Ms. Susan Thompson, Acting Principal to the George Washington School Community.
Dion Betts, Ed.D.
