Taylor, who resigned Friday, was named the district’s North Region executive director Monday, Superintendent Erroll B. Davis Jr. said Monday in a letter posted to the school’s website. Taylor replaces Tony Burks, who is becoming a principal mentor. Curtis Douglass, an assistant principal at North Atlanta, will become the interim principal.
“APS is pleased that we were able to retain a talented employee. We will continue to update the community with details about the transition as they become available,” Davis said in his letter.
Taylor arrived at North Atlanta in October, two weeks after Principal Mark MyGrant and five members of his leadership team were removed from the school by Davis due to alleged improper grade changing. Taylor had previously worked as principal of Gwinnett County’s Lilburn Middle School, where he had served since 2008.
