Hillsboro Charter Academy principal resigns
Peters has been on a leave of absence since December for medical reasons.
Hillsboro Charter board president Rebecca Baldin Fuller announced the resignation in a letter to parents this week.
“I am very sad to report that after careful consideration, Mrs. Ybarra-Peters has determined that she will have to resign her position as principal of HCA,” Fuller wrote. “Trisha's lasting contribution to our inaugural year remains with us as she leaves behind a wonderful team of teachers whom she selected and a nurturing atmosphere that has enabled HCA's children to thrive. We have enormous affection for Trisha and gratitude for the wonderful start she gave us. We will forever cherish the energy and warmth she brought to the role as our founding principal.”
The public charter school opened its doors last August.
The HCA board of directors voted to begin its search for a new principal immediately, according to the announcement. Dr. Virginia Minshew, a retired Loudoun principal, has been serving as the school’s part-time interim principal.
“We recognize that many qualified candidates may not be able to transfer into the position at this late a juncture in the school year,” Fuller said. “For this reason, we are also engaging in a search for someone who can take the position for the remainder of the year on a full-time basis, allowing Dr. Minshew to guide that person's transition.”
Hillsboro Charter Academy is a tuition-free and open to any Loudoun County student.
