Girls Prep Principal/CEO Miriam Lewis Raccah resigns

A letter dated June 30 was sent to all Girls Prep parents informing them that Miriam, Founder of Girls Prep and CEO of PublicPrep has resigned. Cristina Garcia-Coleman, the Managing Director of Finance and Operations will serve as the Interim CEO while the board conducts a search for a new CEO.

Interesting news in the light of the request to SUNY for charter modification. Girls Prep and PAVE are controlled by the same forces. Spencer Robertson's wife is on the GP board.

For background check this post at Norms Notes:

The headline on this article is misleading. Miriam Raccah was the CEO of Public Prep, not the principal of Girls Prep. Each Girls Prep school has its own principal.
