Nila Vance out at Irving Elementary, Mwangi to take reins
Reportedly, Irving Elementary Principal Nila Vance, formerly the principal at Emerson Elementary, will not return for the 2016-2017.
Her replacement will be Sarah Mwangi, currently the principal at Columbia Elementary.
Earlier, East Middle School Principal Bud Sexson was given the heave-ho, being reassigned to busy work at Joplin High School. He will be replaced by Jason Cravens, currently the executive director of secondary education for the district.
As the Turner Report noted earlier this week, McKinley Elementary Principal Terri Hart has resigned effective at the end of the school year.
The resignations and reassignments follow the recent announcement by Cecil Floyd Elementary Principal Gayle Hennessey that she will retire at the end of the year.
The Turner Report has also heard that another principal has decided to retire. More information will be printed as soon as it is confirmed.
The R-8 Board of Education will act on resignations and retirements during its Tuesday meeting.
