JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Twenty Duval County principals are expected to be reassigned to new schools for the 2019-20 school year, the school district told News4Jax.
A Duval County Public Schools spokesperson said the district recognizes that school leadership is central to school culture, teacher development, parent engagement and, most importantly, student achievement.
“It will always be our objective to seek the best possible alignment of leadership strengths with the unique needs of each school in selecting principals to lead our school communities,” the district said.
Many times, principal reassignments for the next school year are posted on the first Duval County School Board meeting agenda after school it out for the summer, which would be June.
It was not posted on June’s agenda and the district said that's because some of the reassignments happened in June, so the principal reassignment listing is scheduled to appear on the July board meeting agenda.
