The Albany High School principal removed from the job because the school didn't improve enough under the Race to the Top program gets a promotion through that same program.

Wednesday the School Board voted 5 to 2 to make Shelia Marshall the coordinator for the Leadership Academy, which was created by accepting Race to the Top money.

The position includes working with teachers to improve their performance. Board members David Maschke and Carol Tharin voted against the move.

Tharin doesn't think Marshall is qualified for the job.

"She has only had two years of teaching experience back in the early 90's. If we're going to have someone that's going to train our teachers to be better teachers they need to have a whole lot more experience in the classroom than two years," Tharin said.

 Under Race to the Top, if Albany High's score don't meet certain criteria next year, the system will be forced to replace many of the staff members.
