Effective July 1, 2014, Buckingham Elementary School Principal Denise Shorts will transfer to Worcester County Public Schools' Central Office as the Coordinator of Instruction for K-12 Literacy and Title I. The K-12 Literacy and Title I coordinator position will replace the position currently held by Dr. Donna Main, Coordinator of Instruction for English, who will be retiring on June 30.

Shorts has served 26 years with the school system and has assumed leadership advisory roled in the system's transition to the Maryland College and Career Readiness Standards (Common Core). As a former curriculum planner who is passionate about literacy, Shorts is eager to guide teachers and administrators in strengthening literacy curricula to reflect system goals.

The process for finding Shorts' replacement at Buckingham Elementary is underway.
