D.C. Schools Chancellor Michelle A. Rhee, continuing a series of aggressive personnel moves, has started notifying principals -- possibly as many as 30 -- that they will not be reappointed for the 2008-09 academic year, officials said yesterday.

A form letter over Rhee's signature went out to the principals identified for firing yesterday afternoon. It was to be followed by a series of one-on-one meetings between the principals and instructional superintendents, their immediate supervisors, said Rhee's spokeswoman, Mafara Hobson.

"I am writing to provide you with notice of my decision not to reappoint you to the position of principal with the District of Columbia Public Schools (DCPS) for the 2008-2009 school year," the letter began. The dismissals are effective June 30. The Washington Post
