North Beach Elementary School (9018 24th Ave NW) will have a new principal next school year.
Seattle Schools Superintendent Maria Goodloe-Johnson sent a letter stating that the current principal, Joanne Bowers, has requested a transfer to another school and will be assigned to the same role at Green Lake Elementary. Bowers will stay at North Beach through this school year and start at Green Lake on July 1.
“Our plan is to conduct a hiring process that includes the opportunity for the school community to participate in interviews of applicants. An interview committee will be established that will include staff and family representatives,” the letter states.
According to spokeswoman Patti Spencer, the hope is to have the new principal appointed by the end of the school year.
