The Wake County school board appointed Darryl Fisher this evening to become the interim principal of Wilburn Elementary School in North Raleigh.
Fisher replaces Mark Tracy, who is leaving to take a job in another district. Fisher will fill in at Wilburn from April 1 through the end of the school year.
Fisher has plenty of first-hand experience at Wilburn, serving as principal from 1985 to 2006 and more recently as interim assistant principal. But losing a principal at this point in the school year probably isn't great considering that Wilburn is a Renaissance School, meaning it's getting additional federal funding because of its test scores.
