Lake Area New Tech principal resigns in first week of classes

Print More

Turnover continues in the New Beginnings Charter School Network — the network’s high school principal resigned at the beginning of the new school year.

Classes started Aug. 5 for Lake Area New Tech Early College High School students, and Principal Chad Broussard resigned the first week of August, New Beginnings CEO Sametta Brown said.

New Beginnings has struggled with attrition — losing one-third of its staff this summer. Last year, principals at three of the network’s four schools, including the high school, resigned.

Broussard was named principal of the high school just last December, after then-principal Michael Booker left the network.

Broussard “has taken an assistant superintendent position in New Jersey,” Brown said Thursday.

In the meantime, Brown said, Assistant Principal Darren Lewis will serve as interim principal.
