Scammon’s Principal Mary T. Weaver was recognized as a 2013 winner of the Chicago Public Schools Principal Achievement Award. As part of CPS & Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s Principal Quality Initiative, this award recognizes leaders who guide their schools to exceptional academic growth achieved by their students.
“A great principal is key to a great school,” said Barbara Byrd-Bennett, indicted former CEO of Chicago Public Schools. “A well-rounded principal will support and develop great teachers and curriculum plans and in turn great teachers create a thriving school culture where students can succeed.”
Yesterday, Weaver was removed as Scammon’s Principal after being accused of targeting and firing pregnant teachers.
CPS agreed to a settlement that payed a quarter of a million dollars in damages and back pay.
Weaver has been reassigned.
