Principal who launched Pinellas academy transfers mid-year

30

November

The principal who helped pilot Pinellas County's first fully immersed personalized learning program at Lealman Innovation Academy has left for an administrative assignment.

Bursara Pitts, 43, was appointed to a special assignment with the school district's Assessment, Accountability and Research department, effective Monday. Assistant principal Connisheia Mathews will serve as interim principal until a full-time replacement is hired, said district spokeswoman Lisa Wolf.

Wolf said principals sometimes take a special assignment during the school year if it is in the best interest of the principal, students and/or staff.

Pitts joined Pinellas Schools in 1999.
