Miner Elementary School (601 15th St. NE) is on the hunt for a new principal.
Dr. Anne Evans, who has served as the school’s principal since 2013, will not return to the school in the fall due to unspecified health issues. The school shared the news yesterday in a letter addressed to parents from DCPS Chief of Schools John Davis.
“D.C. Public Schools is supportive of Dr. Evans’s decision to focus on her health and we were her well in the months to come,” Davis writes in the letter. “We will soon be asking for community and parent participation in the paneling process for a new principal.”
“Please join me in thanking Principal Evans for her hard work and dedication to Miner Elementary School for the last three years. I would especially like to thank the staff at Miner who are continuing to ensure smooth day to day operations as we wrap-up the end of the school year. For the remainder of the year, and to avoid any further transition, Assistant Principal Tiffany Torrence will continue to be the main point of contact at Miner, with the support of Assistant Principal Justin Ralston who joined the school last month.”
A new principal is slated to start as early as July. Click here to view the full letter on Twitter.
