Did the superintendnet reorganize the district while nobody was looking?
By Greg Sampson
First, Fred Heid was Chief Academic Officer and Daniela Simic was Chief of Academics: I never understood how their titles worked but Simic reported through Heid or so I thought.
But Heid has left to be a super in his own right in Illinois. Who took his place? Who knows?
Addison Davis is now Chief of Schools but what does that mean? I thought that title had been retired, but has Davis taken over Heid’s spot? I’m not really sure.
Then Anthony Anderson was hired from a Palm Beach County charter school to be a region chief and media references said he was in charge of middle schools.
Then there are vague media references that Iranetta Wright is in charge of QEA schools—basically the turnaround schools.
But DCPS was organized into four regions—groups of high schools with the feeder middle schools and their feeder elementary schools underneath them.
What’s going on? Has Dr. Vitti reorganized the district while no one was watching? Do principals know who their supervisors are?
It would help if DCPS published an organization chart on their website, but no, you won’t find that.
While we were sleeping and dreaming about the principal changes, did the superintendent pull off a reorganization? Without Board input and approval?
