Leadership Announcement for Global Arts Plus Lower Campus

Global Arts logo

Dear Global Arts Plus Lower Campus Community, 

I am pleased to share with you that I have selected a new leader for Global Arts Plus Lower Campus. Please join me in welcoming Dr. LaKisha Franks as your school’s principal beginning in the 2024-25 school year.

Dr. Franks has spent the last two years as principal at Buder Elementary, part of Ritenour School District near St. Louis. Dr. Franks has 16 years of education experience as a classroom teacher, teacher instruction leader, assistant principal and principal. She holds three education degrees from the University of Missouri St. Louis, plus her Ed.D. from Missouri Baptist University. 

To help Dr. Franks learn more about Global Arts Plus Lower Campus, please take a moment to complete a short survey about your values and priorities of your school community.

As Dr. Morris communicated to the community earlier this year, GAP’s new two principal design will allow each leader to respond more consistently and effectively to student and staff needs, while also giving both leaders the time to focus on the unique strengths and challenges of each campus. 

If you have any questions, please contact me at 651-767-8152. 

Thank you for supporting your child and Global Arts Plus Lower Campus. 


Joe Gothard
