A New Haven school principal faulted for problems at her school lost her post – as part of her reassignment to run a different school.
The New Haven Independent has the story:
In the wake of a blistering state audit revealing deep troubles and a divided faculty at Lincoln-Bassett School, the Board of Education removed Principal Yolanda Jones-Generette from her post Monday night.
A state audit earlier this year revealed the school faces significant problems. Those include student behavior, a low level of “rigor” in classes, teacher absenteeism, and safety issues. The audit found the staff was divided on whether Jones-Generette was solving the problems or making them worse.
The state recently invited the Lincoln-Bassett School into the Commissioner’s Network turnaround program. (Read an earlier story from the Independent here.)
Jones-Generette, who the Independent reports opposed her transfer, will now run the Barnard Magnet School.
