Dionne Jenkins is now the general counsel for Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Schools, and Andrew Kraft will serve the district as the interim director of accountability services.

Kraft is replacing Dana Wrights, who will be leaving the district June 16. She will help Kraft with the transition throughout the 2016-17 school year.

Kraft has been the district’s program manager for social studies since 2012. He also works as an adjunct professor at Winston-Salem State University instructing students in social studies teaching methods.

He has worked as the district’s lead STEM teacher, the STEM magnet coordinator at Hanes Magnet School, and as a social studies teacher for N.C. Virtual Public Schools, WS/FCS and Stokes County Schools. He also taught at a 12-month residential therapeutic wilder-ness education program in Low Gap.
