Principal David Peck, the newly appointed leader at Chimborazo Elementary, is making up for the late hour by visiting students’ homes in the neighborhood.
Mr.Peck comes to RPS after three years as an assistant principal in the Prince William County Schools system, six years teaching in Chesterfield County, and almost six years in the Navy.
At the end of the last school year, four of the area schools lost their principals. Mr.Peck joins Jeryl Scott who was named as the new principal at Martin Luther King Jr. Middle School in June in taking the reins at neighborhood schools in a time of unprecedented public focus on the city’s schools. Tamara Mines is the principal at Armstrong HS, and it appears that Woodville ES will be led by Interim Principal Vercynthia Penn.
