Skyline is not the only Oakland high school that has watched a principal-select slip away. Debra Marker has apparently walked away from the top leadership post at Oakland High School.
OUSD spokesman Troy Flint confirmed that the rumor (which I first heard from a blog reader) was true. Marker — whose name appeared on a June personnel report — withdrew her name in the last week or two, before her employment was finalized, he said. He said he didn’t know her reasons for leaving.
“We’re just going to go back to the candidate pool,” Flint said. “Time is of the essence, and staff is working to identify a leader before the start of the school year.”
