A Fulton County elementary principal is leaving after a few months in the role.
The school district confirmed Monday that Latrina Coxton would be leaving Love T. Nolan Elementary on Nov. 1, which will be 81 days after classes started on Aug. 12.
The district laid out the plan to replace Coxton at Nolan, which is just south of Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport.
When asked why the principal was leaving, Fulton Schools southside superintendent Gyimah Whitaker said through a spokeswoman that Coxton had “received a promotion to director of special education for Henry County.”
She said the plan is for Sharon Gay to start as interim principal Oct. 28. Interviews will start Nov. 12 with a panel that includes district executive but also the school’s PTA head, Nolan parents and the school’s teacher of the year.
Maxey said the panel hopes to have a recommendation to the school board by Dec. 3.
