SALEM, Ore. (AP) -- The Salem-Keizer School District is shuffling the principals at half its high schools as a condition for receiving a federal grant.
Oregon Public Broadcasting reports that the principals at McKay, McNary and North Salem high schools are changing places. McKay was ranked among the lowest-achieving schools in Oregon, and it could receive up to $6 million in federal money.
But under School Improvement Grant rules the district agreed to implement, that means the principal has to go.
Oregon and Washington both have a number of other schools where big changes are planned, in the quest for substantial federal grants.
