New principal named to Carpenter Elementary School

The Wake County school board appointed a new principal tonight to lead Carpenter Elementary School in Cary.

April Hill, an assistant principal at Durant Road Elementary School, will be paid $80,857 a year to lead Carpenter. She's been at Durant Road since 2010 and before that spent five years as an assistant principal at Green Hope Elementary.

Hill won't start at Carpenter until Dec. 3 so Freda Cole will serve as interim principal. Cole was principal at Forest Pines Elementary until she retired earlier this year.

Staff weighing the need this fall for the two new Wake County modular campus elementary schools

If only one of the two new Wake County elementary schools does open for the 2012-13 school year, it could be Richland Creek Elementary in Wake Forest.

Superintendent Tony Tata told school board members this week that there appears to be a greater need for Richland Creek than for Abbotts Creek Elementary for the upcoming school year based on the capacity needs of their respective areas.

Tata said they'd wait until after the end of the second round of school selection to recommend whether to delay the opening of either or both schools. Both new schools, slated to open in modular campuses until their permanent buildings are constructed, had few applicants in Round 1.
