Yakima schools plan to replace principals

Posted: Updated:

Four Yakima schools could have new principals next year.  Adams and barge Lincoln Elementary, Washington Middle, Stanton Alternative High Schools all applied for the federal "Race to the Top" grant.  On March 26th they find out if they will get as much as two million dollars to improve their schools.  If they get the grant, three of the four schools plan to replace their principals and reform their curriculums per federal stipulations.  The principal of Stanton Academy will be able to keep his position because he has held it for less than two years.
