After contentious assembly, Bunnell Elementary gets a new principal
Bunnell Elementary School is getting a new principal in 2024 after the former Flagler County school's principal resigned as the result of a contentious school assembly.
Cari McGee will be the new principal at Bunnell Elementary School in Flagler County in the new year.
Former principal Donnelle Evensen resigned in September following a school assembly singling out Black students for their performance on a statewide test, that many were high scorers on.
McGee has been the assistant principal at the school since 2019. Before that she was a school counselor.
In a statement, Flagler Schools Superintendent LaShakia Moore says that stakeholders asked for a leader who would listen and be active in the community and that, “Ms. McGee is that person.”
Bunnell Elementary received a C letter grade on the latest statewide Florida Department of Education report card.
