Warrington Middle School dean seeks grassroots charter in Pensacola

While the Escambia County School Board has been weighing its options in transitioning Warrington Middle into a charter, a new contender entered the mix Tuesday night, vying for a say in the school’s fate.

Darreyel Laster, current dean of Warrington Middle School, presented a proposal to the school board to transition Warrington Middle into a grassroots, teacher-driven, student-centered charter that would be named Warrington Community School.

“I moved back home a year and a half ago with the idea that I wanted to start a school,” Laster told the News Journal. “I want to make sure that our students have a place where they can go, and they can feel successful, that cares for them and loves on them.”
