Three Newark district high schools —Science Park (an exclusive magnet), Central High School, and Newark Vocatinal High School— are losing their principals.

The principal at Science Park, Angela Mincy, will take over the Marrion P. Thomas Charter School, which has three campuses in Newark. The principal of Central High, Dr. Sharnee Brown, retired earlier this month. The principal of Newark Vocational, Kyle Brown, has been demoted. (Parents and students are protesting and the Newark Teachers Association will appeal the decision.)

Chalkbeat quotes Christine Taylor, president of Newark’s school administrators union, who said she is “concerned by the number of principal changes and by the fact that their replacements will take over at such a high-stakes moment, when schools are preparing to fully reopen in the fall.” Taylor continued,

I was very surprised at the number of people” being replaced. The new people, it’s going to be difficult for them because [next school year] is not going to be normal, whether it’s in person or not.
