DCPS has outlined the process for selecting the new Principal at Jefferson Academy. There will be a panel of community and PTA members who develop a questions and conduct interviews with finalists. A Brent PTA representative will serve on a panel with other feeder schools, Jefferson Academy staff and parents. The proposed schedule from DCPS is to have an organizational meeting of this panel on June 6th and then spend June 10th meeting with principal candidates and making a recommendation. DCPS is looking for a member of the PTA who is familiar with Jefferson and its needs, and is elected by the PTA membership.
Any Brent PTA member may be nominated for the position. Interested individuals should send their name to Kevin Moore. Nominations will be accepted until on Thursday, May 26th. The election will be held at Brent on Friday, May 27th from 8 to 9 am. I apologize for the short time frame, but DCPS requires the representative be elected by May 31st.
