New principals announced in Metro Schools
By JAIME SARRIO • Staff Writer(Tennessean.com) • July 15, 2008 State officials today announced 68 new principal and assistant principal assignments at schools across Davidson County.State education officials have intervened in Metro's staffing decisions, along with other functions, because the district has failed to meet testing standards for four years in a row. Earlier this summer, top-level administrators at the central office were moved into new positions.Several high schools will have new principal, including Hillwood, Overton and McGavock. In 2006, the state put new leadership in place at Maplewood High School after years of failing test scores. For the first time in almost a decade, that school met state testing standards this school year.
