MINT HILL – Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools has appointed equity specialist Layla Stanley to fill the principal vacancy at Crown Point Elementary School.

Stanley joined CMS in 2012 as a teacher at Sterling Elementary after working a few years in Georgia. She served as dean of students at Matthews Elementary from 2014 to 2017 and as curriculum coordinator for the South Learning Community from 2017 to 2018. She has been an equity specialist for middle schools since 2018.

Stanley told the school board on May 25 that she was honored to work at CMS and that she is looking forward to serving students, staff and families at Crown Point Elementary.

She will be the third principal at the school since 2018. Mark Anderson retired from the role that year. Kevin Woods left John Motley Morehead STEM Academy for the vacancy. CMS appointed Woods in April to serve as principal at Randolph IB Middle School.
