Board appoints new Myers principal

Malik Jones is the new principal at Stephen and Harriet Myers Middle School following his appointment at the City School District of Albany Board of Education meeting Oct. 4. Jones will begin at Myers on Oct. 5, replacing Jennifer Chatain, who resigned.


Jones has served as co-principal at Edmund J. O'Neal Middle School of Excellence for the past two school years. Prior to that, he served as principal at Montessori Magnet School for four years.


"We believe Mr. Jones will provide a strong, collaborative leadership aopproach that will benefit all Myers students and the entire school community," Superintendent Kaweeda G. Adams said. "He is committed to working together with all faculty, staff, students and families in a systemic way to identify and continue those programs and activities that the Myers commmunity values while also engaging stakeholders in making the necessary adjustments that will benefit all."

"My overarching goal is to work synergistically as a collective Myers community to move our building forward," Jones said.


The board also approved the transfer of Myers Assistant Principal Timitra Rose to the same position at O'Neal Middle School, effective Oct. 9.
