Colorado League of Charter Schools President Jim Griffin is stepping down in May, the organization announced Friday.
But Griffin, who has worked with the League almost since its founding in the 1990s, isn’t leaving the League — instead, he will lead the creation of a new venture in the organization. The new project will focus on national advocacy and providing services to organizations that support charter schools around the country.
The League’s Board of Directors also announced Friday that it has tapped Nora Flood, who is currently the group’s senior vice president of school services, to become the new president. Flood has worked with the League since 2008 providing support and technical assistance to schools.
Recently, Flood argued in EdNews Colorado that the proposed school funding overhaul should include more equitable financing for charter schools.
