The Atlanta Public Schools voted to appoint Therrell Health Science & Research High School interim principal Shelley Powell as the permanent principal (see full list of all principal appointments here). Therrell High School is composed of three educational units including the Health Sciences and Research HS, the Law Government and Public Policy HS and the School of Technology, Engineering, Math and Sciences (STEMS) HS – all of which are housed at the same facility. Under the current organization structure, each high school has its own principal.
Additionally, the Board passed a resolution (see here) requesting a waiver from the State regulations that require one certified administrator for each high school. If the one-year waiver is granted by the State, Ms. Powell would assume responsibility for all three education units located at Therrell.
