Dear Young Women's College Prep Charter School Families,

I am very pleased to be asked to assist with the transition to a new principal at Young Women's College Prep. I will be the Interim Principal while the Board of Trustees recruits, interviews and selects the person to be the next leader of our school community.

I have been part of the Rochester educational community for fifty years. I have served in various capacities at Wilson, Madison, East, Charlotte, Edison, and the district office. I was honored to have been chosen and served as principal at Charlotte for three years, Edison for one year and East for fifteen years. Since my retirement in 2002, I have served as a mentor to many administrators in the district and in 2009 returned to East as acting Principal for eight months. Since 2012, I have served as CEO at Urban Choice Charter School.

I believe that YWCP is uniquely positioned to have a powerful influence on the families and community of the Rochester area. Our first group of YWCP students are preparing to graduate in June and through the safe, uplifting school environment in which they have participated, we will graduate students who are academically, emotionally, and socially prepared to become the leaders of tomorrow.

I extend to you the opportunity to meet with me and the excellent administrators, teachers, and staff whenever you have questions, ideas, or concerns. I know that by working together we can provide the best possible outcomes for our students.

I look forward to meeting you in the weeks and months ahead. We all hope you can attend as many events as possible as we support our students on their educational journey.

Edward J. Cavalier
Interim Principal
