Chapel Hill-Carrboro City Schools has another principal vacancy on its hands now that Jesse Dingle has decided to leave Chapel Hill High School. Dingle will start July 1 as principal of John Handley High, a public school in Winchester, Va.
Dingle says that he is proud of his three-year stint at Chapel Hill High, overseeing an improved graduation rate each year and statewide honors.
Mostly, he says, he hopes he was “fair, firm and very friendly” as principal.
“So many high school principals are viewed as a disciplinarian sitting in the office,” Dingle says. “I’ve really tried to break that mold and get out among the students.”
