CHARLOTTE Local Charlotte News — Embattled and suspended Myers Park High School Principal Mark Bosco has a new job in Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools.
Bosco, who was suspended in August and investigated for claims that he improperly handled sexual assault allegations on campus, will now be the Senior Administrator for Expanded Learning and Partnerships with the school district.
His dismissal comes after months of controversy surrounding his tenure.
“We do know that some changes are being made, but we feel it’s only because they got caught,” said Katrina Carson, a Senior at Myers Park, who has helped lead protests against the handling of sexual assault.
Two students came forward in the spring saying they were sexually assaulted near campus and their reports were not taken seriously.
The district suspended Principal Bosco with pay and an interim principal was put in place.
In a letter sent to parents of children at the school Wednesday, CMS said Dr. Maureen Furr will continue to serve as interim principal until the vacancy is filled.
