Last night the Richmond School Board removed and reassigned G.H. Reid Elementary School Principal Vincent Darby after two years on the job and significant drops in SOL scores.
In the past two years, G.H. Reid has fallen into priority status, a classification for schools in the bottom 5% of Title One schools in the state. Those in priority status are automatically entered into a federally mandated reform process, which requires the board to replace the principal or lose up to $500,000 in federal funding for resources to turn the school around.
