Charlotte Mecklenburg School’s new superintendent, Heath Morrison, visited Independence High School Monday. Morrison met with principal Amy Dellinger, faculty, transportation staff, and students.
“His primary goal was to get a feel for the culture and the organization of summer school,” said Dellinger. Independence High School holds summer school for the district, serving students and teachers from Providence, East Mecklenburg, and Butler High Schools.
Morrison entered classrooms and spoke with students about the purpose of their summer school enrolment, graduation plans, and the next steps after graduation.
Dellinger and Morrison had some informal conversations about what is working well for Independence. They will have a more Independence-focused conversation later in the year to discuss teachers, students, and the culture of the school.
“We were certainly glad to have him here,” said Dellinger.
