Melanie Hill, who has led Potter Elementary School through some of its most difficult years, is being transferred to the top job at Bing Elementary School.
Hill's transfer was one of many on the agenda for approval at Tuesday's meeting of the Hillsborough County School Board. No replacement was identified.
Potter, with a string of F grades from the state, is one of seven schools that Superintendent Jeff Eakins identified first as Priority, then Elevate schools. It is one of a larger number now considered Achievement schools. And it is one of seven that the state has designated for possible takeover in July by an outside operator..
Potter is not the only Priority/Elevate school to changes leaders in the coming year:
Sligh Middle, which went through a succession of leaders before Shellie Blackwood-Green came in as a stabilizing force in 2015, will also get a new principal as Blackwood-Green moves to the top job at Williams Middle Magnet. Blackwood-Green will be replaced at Sligh by Anthony Jones, who will leave Walker Middle Magnet
James Boyd, Jr., formerly the assistant principal at Mann Middle School, will lead Dowdell Middle Magnet School, effective July 1. Boyd replaces Roger Stanley, who was hired as a physical education teacher at Colson Elementary School.
Principal Michael Miranda will move from Rodgers Middle to Orange Grove Middle.
Principal Elizabeth Giles will move from Forest Hills Elementary to Seminole Elementary.
Principal Rachael O'Dea will move from Lanier Elementary to Forest Hills.
