Up to 30 principals to get the boot

It looks like Chancellor Rhee is continuing to go after DCPS staff with a hatchet. The Chancellor is apparently informing up to 30 principals that, after the current school year, their services will no longer be required.
D.C. Schools Chancellor Michelle A. Rhee, continuing a series of aggressive personnel moves, has started notifying principals -- possibly as many as 30 -- that they will not be reappointed for the 2008-09 academic year, officials said yesterday.

Turnover among principals, who work under one-year appointments, typically occurs near the end of the school term. About 15 to 20 are usually dismissed, according to the Council of School Officers, which represents principals.
