EHS Principal Update

EHS Principal Update
Posted on 01/21/2020

I write to you concerning ongoing administrative staffing changes at the high school. The changes in administrative staff are to first, provide the safest and most secure environment for our students, faculty and staff. Second, to offer a world-class education for our students; to ensure they have a wide array of personal, educational and professional opportunities following high school. The staffing changes in question pertain to the principalship and a new position, associate principal. 

As many of you are aware, Mr. Rickie Hopkins has served in a principal- leadership capacity since his arrival in November. Following Mrs. Parks’ departure effective January 1, Mr. Hopkins’ status changed to interim principal. Effective immediately, Mr. Hopkins’ designation will change from interim principal, to principal. Furthermore, Mr. Hopkins will serve as principal for the remainder of the school year. Our search for a long-term principal is still in progress and we will install a new principal at EHS effective July 1. The purpose in delaying the installation of a long-term principal is to limit the staffing changes, thus impacting our students, faculty and staff.

In my weekly observations of EHS, I have decided that a third administrator is necessary for the effective operation of the high school. The newest administrative acquisition is that of Mr. Mahdi Dublin, associate principal. Mr. Dublin will begin his tenure at EHS effective today. Mr. Dublin’s role as associate principal will entail added supervision for the orderly operation of the school, in addition, he will primarily handle instructional supervision matters.

In closing, as indicated previously in various correspondence, our motto this year is, Excellence is the Expectation. The aforementioned changes in administrative personnel at EHS, I believe, will lead us one step closer to that aim of excellence. Best to you and yours, and go Trojans!

Dr. Harr R. Thomas III
