FRANKLIN—Beverly Rabil, who is resigning as the associate director of instruction for Franklin City Public Schools, on Nov. 19 will begin working for the Virginia Department of Education, Charles Pyle, director of communications, said Friday.

Pyle said she will be working for the Office of School Improvement.

“She will be coordinating the implementation of turnaround programs in 36 low-performing schools identified as priority schools,” said Pyle.

A priority school, such as J.P. King Middle School, has such a low academic performance, that it has to use a third-party, or outside contractor, to better scores and create yearly goals for improving achievement.

He added that Rabil’s salary will be $94,829. Pyle did not think she would have to move for the job, but was not able to confirm on Friday.

Rabil would be working under Dr. Kathleen Smith.

The office is under the umbrella of Student Assessment and School Improvement led by Shelley Loving-Ryder, assistant superintendent.

Rabil did not return phone calls on Friday.
