Leon County's New School Principals Begin Training

By  | 

With a new semester on its way, it's time to get to work.

This year the school board is trying something new with the "Principals in Transition" program.

In the past, the new principals began their training over the summer. The program now enables the new principals to work alongside the current principal throughout the year.

Gretchen Everhart, Principal, said, "It's going to allow my staff and students and parents to have a much easier transition when Jane comes on board."

Jane Floyd Bullen will replace Brown and said, "Instruction is not compromised by someone new coming in and trying to learn without having that expert you know right with you."

Educators say with the transition program, the hired principals will be up to speed and ready to take on the new school year.
