There's been a shakeup in the executive organization of Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools.
"We plan to begin the work with an initial reorganization," New CMS Superintendent Dr. Heath Morrison said. "
Which will be followed by additional reshaping of our executive and senior staff during 2013. This is part of a cycle of continuous improvement that will keep us flexible and responsive to our students, families, schools and employees."
Morrison commissioned three independent audits shortly after he arrived in July.
The human resources department was audited by AronsConsulting. The communications audit was conducted by Drive West Communications and the organizational audit by the Council of the Great City Schools.
The audit team discovered problems with both the communications and HR departments.
Many think the communications department missed several opportunities to be effective and the HR department was faulted for doing a poor job in recruiting and retaining effective teachers.
"This reorganization and new leadership will strengthen our executive team and provide better support to our schools," Dr. Morrison said.
"The audits showed us some areas where we can improve our performance, and these changes reflect what we learned from those audits. We are also adding some positions and reshaping others to focus on specific areas."
The following people will see a change in their current roles as a result of the shakeup:
Dr. Kelly W. Gwaltney becomes Chief HR Officer
Currently leads CMS East Zone
Kathyrn D. Block becomes Chief Communications Officer
Currently Director of Quality Management, CMS Auxiliary Services Dept.
LaTarzja Henry becomes Assistant Superintendent for Community Partnerships and Family Engagement
Currenly Executive Director of Communications
Takes on newly created role to lead the effort to strengthen existing partnerships with parents and the community and create new ones to benefit every school
About the changed roles, Dr. Morrison says, "Community and family partnerships are critical assets to CMS. Strengthening our partnerships, as well as creating new ones, will help us provide more comprehensive services to our students and schools."
