Which teachers should leave the classroom at Mayport elementary, Coastal Sciences?
Posted On June 13, 2021
Mayport Beach Elementary Coastal Science PTA voted unanimously to leave the school on Monday.
The board voted 4-3 to ask a district-appointed monitor to oversee the school’s operations, with the lone abstention from the school board member, Doreen Pacheco.
The PTA said Monday that the school will have a new principal and new district administrators by January, which is two months after the board voted to leave.
Mayport’s parent organization, Mayport Education Alliance, and other community groups said the school is in a state of emergency because of the outbreak.
The board will meet to discuss the matter at a later date.
The school board’s decision to leave comes two days after the superintendent, Richard Jones, issued a public statement saying the school was in an emergency.
Jones said the board has a duty to ensure safety at all times, adding that the district has worked diligently to reduce the spread of the virus.
Mayfield Elementary School is a district charter school.
