Jonathan Bryant, second in command at Lincoln Charter School, has been promoted to take the top post when Dave Machado moves on to head the North Carolina Office of Charter Schools.
Lincoln Charter, which has about 1,900 K-12 students on campuses in Denver and Lincolnton, is the state’s largest charter school. The state Board of Education hired Machado in February to head the office that oversees North Carolina’s growing charter school program, starting in July.
Bryant, who is Lincoln’s assistant chief administrator, has been with the school for eight years. He has a master’s degree in educational leadership from Gardner-Webb University. He will assume the top job when Machado leaves in June.
