Examples of Principal Assignment Problems

Looking through articles over the last couple of years, here are a few examples of how the principal assignment process has been mishandled:

- Principal move upsets West Seattle High

- Seattle school district pays principal to resign

- For school leaders' sins, golden parachutes

- School-principal transfers cause some upset

My guess is that there are many, many more stories about problems with the principal assignment and selection process that aren't documented in the press. For example, the process (or lack of process) at Graham Hill Elementary as seven principals in six years have been assigned to the school is truly appalling.

Please post your school's principal assignment stories as comments on this blog. The more we know about what is going on around the district, the stronger our collective voice will be.
