Update 3/22/16: Media relations representative Lisa Metcalf says Tammy Ferguson left her position at Henderson immediately. A previous version of this story said that Henderson would leave at the end of the school year.

The principal of Florida Atlantic’s  A.D. Henderson University School — an elementary middle school found on the Boca Raton campus — Tammy Ferguson is leaving her position immediately to take the same job at The Weiss school, according to Virtual Strategy Magazine’s webpage.

Ferguson will replace the outgoing Principal Denise Spirou. According to the website, Spirou will help Ferguson transition into the position during the current school year.

Founded in Palm Beach Gardens and started by Martin D. Weiss in 1989, the organization is the only private school for gifted pre-k, elementary and middle school education in southeast Florida.

The Weiss School began searching for a new director following Spirou’s announcement in October that she would be leaving the school after 16 years as its principal.

“The hiring of Dr. Ferguson is consistent with the approach of the Weiss School to identify and attract world-class educators to the campus,” the school said in a statement.

It cited Ferguson’s record and influence at FAU as the main reasons for her hiring.
