BRIGHTON — There will be a new charter group in place at Brighton Collegiate High School next year and there will be a new leadership team at Bromley East Charter School in Bromley Park.
Longtime Bromley East Principal Bob Bair informed parents and faculty in a letter March 11 that he will not return as a principal at the school.
“… the Board of Directors feels appreciative of the role I have played in bringing Bromley to its present stage of development, but feels it is now time to pass the mantle of administrative leadership on to another leader,” Bair wrote. “I accept their decision.”
Co-principal Karla Ash and dean of students, Natalie Tomlinson, will also not return to the school.
In a letter sent to parents March 25, the school’s board of directors indicated that they decided several months ago to revamp the school’s administrative structure to increase academic achievement and return to a more conventional model of one principal assisted by two vice principals.
The letter was complimentary of the current school leadership.
“These three individuals have brought great inspiration, stability and success to Bromley East Charter School,” the letter stated. “We owe each of them an enormous debt of gratitude for the dedication, professionalism, energy and personal sacrifice they have given to our students, our school and our community."
An executive search committee spent the past several months in a nationwide search for candidates and made its recommendation to the board March 23.
The school held a meet and greet with the candidates April 6, in the school’s cafeteria. The board hopes to announce its final choices by April 16.
