New Times² chief still finalist for top job at Alabama A&M

PROVIDENCE, R.I. — Lawrence Davenport, the new director of the city charter school Times² Academy is still a finalist for the presidency of Alabama A&M University, a university spokesman said Wednesday.

Jerome Saintjones, director of public relations for A&M University, said that Davenport has not removed himself from contention for the post, where he is one of three finalists.
Davenport was interviewing for the Alabama presidency two days before he began his new job in Providence. At the time, the Huntsville Times reported that several A&M trustees had no idea that Davenport had already accepted the job in Providence.

Meanwhile, Times² board of directors’ chairman Ken McDaniel said that Davenport remains the executive director of the K-12 charter school near Smith Hill, and then said, “we’re looking at the whole arrangement.” He declined to elaborate.

Davenport did not attend a recent news conference at Times² that heralded the charter’s school 100 percent graduation rate. The event drew Governor Carcieri and several high-profile education leaders.

“His focus is on development,” McDaniel said. “The leadership team is running the school.”

The team includes the principals of the elementary and secondary schools as well as the curriculum director.

Who’s On The Faculty?

The meet and greet for Dr. Davenport had been canceled, and no reason was given. I am hearing that he will be working with the school in a fund raising position? (but not residing in Rhode Island?) and that Dr. Jeri Thompson is acting as the Executive Director? (She is primarily working via Pennsylvania, I believe.)

That is great exposure for Times Squared Academy!

Still in the running

http://blog.al.com/breaking/2009/02/alabama_am_calls_off_fridays_b.html

As of Feb. 24 Dr. Davenport still seems to be in the running for the Alabama job. He has not withdrawn his candidacy there, which leads me to the conclusion that he has not fully commited to us.

Does anybody know why the meet and greet was postponed to March 25?

What’s eating our kids? Fears of bad foods.

“Sodium makes your heart beat faster, so it can create something really serious,” said Greye, who is 8 years old and lives in Mays Landing, N.J.”

ever tried to make a fidgety kid sit still?

“On one recent morning, while 11-year-old Nick Raboin had his eye on his math problems, Ms. Brown was noticing that he preferred to shift his weight from one foot to the other as he figured out his fractions. She also knew that his classmate Roxy Cotter liked to stand more than sit. And Brett Leick is inclined to lean on a high stool and swing his right foot under a desk that is near chest level. Helps with concentration, he and Ms. Brown say.”
