The principal for Loudoun County’s newest elementary school has been named.
Ann Hines, now the principal of Rosa Lee Carter Elementary School, will serve as Goshen Post Elementary School’s first principal. The school is under construction on a site next to John Champe High School near Aldie and scheduled to open next August.
Hines has led Rosa Lee Carter Elementary since 2014. Before working in Loudoun County, she taught first through sixth grade in the Kanawha County School District in Charleston, WV. She then served as a fifth-grade teacher at Cedar Lane Elementary, as an administrative intern at Rosa Lee Carter Elementary, and as assistant principal at Cedar Lane Elementary, before returning to Rosa Lee Carter Elementary as its principal.
The School Board voted unanimously Tuesday to approve Hines’ new assignment at Goshen Post Elementary.
Board Chairman Jeff Morse (Dulles) said the move is good news for families of the new school, but sad news for the Rosa Lee Carter Elementary families.
“I don’t know how Rosa Lee Carter is going to exist without you. I really don’t. The good news is you’re not going far,” he said. “Thank you for all you have done. The community will certainly miss you.”
Her new position is effective Nov. 15.
The process to redraw the attendance lines to prepare for the opening of Goshen Post Elementary begins Monday evening. At 6:30 p.m., School Board members will hear an overview of the boundary process. The first public hearing on the boundaries is 6:30 p.m. Monday, Oct. 23, at the school administration building, 21000 Education Court in Ashburn.
