So, are the districts in my area the only ones that do this? Principal of school A is moved to School B, while principal of School B is moved to School C, and Principal of School C is moved to school A. (And so on and so forth) Original principal of School A was there for two years, moved to School D, and now is back at School A, two years later. I understand that sometimes, maybe a principal isn't the right fit, or something, but it's every year around here, and it's the same people being shifted around, with maybe one outside person coming in for the one position that the principal left the district altogether. So much of a school culture is dependent on consistency, and how can that happen when as soon as the principal really figures it out, they're on their way somewhere else? What happened to principals retiring, and then AP simply being promoted up into the position? Smooth transition, easy peasy lemony squeezy.
