The principal at Mandarin Middle school was unceremoniously canned with 14 days left of school. Vitti went to visit this morning for emergency faculty meeting. He told us the staff he had made some mistakes in placing people at MMS and wanted to own up to them and fix it before he left. Most staff thought this meant a new principal for next year. Nope...it meant, Principal Marx gone is gone and Williams an AP from Stillwell was promoted to Mandarin principal now, effective immediately. What a way to %$#^ someone over on your way out the door! She wasn't the best principal but she didn't' do anything to deserve that.
I am told discipline was terrible at Mandarin Middle, though that's a problem many schools have experienced under Vitti.
A bigger problem however is this new principal will be the fourth in four years after only having 3 in their first 21 years. Unless your name is Iranetta Wright it seems you don't get many chances in the district.
Two things, who is next and Sunday, Vitti's last day can't get here fast enough.
