Cristy Graves, principal at North Laurel School has accepting a position with the Cape Henlopen School District.
Graves who was an outspoken advocate to keep Dr. John McCoy as superintendent will be missed by parents, students and her faculty. Her school was probably the best disciplined school in the district and students actually received a good education.
She was a go-getter, no-nonsense administrator. Her departure marks the second high-profile employee to leave the district. The other, football coach, and guidance counselor Clarence Giles left recently for an assistant principal position in Seaford.
With less than 6 weeks before school opens, no permanent superintendent to guide the ship the district is in a hell of a mess trying to fill positions. Who would want to come here that is a qualified teacher with all the turmoil we’ve been having?
Is the ship sinking, or has it sunk?
