Principal Selection Community Meetings

The end of June traditionally marks the time of year when there are changes in leadership at school sites as a result of retirement, promotion, personal choice or reassignment.

District Logo In the district’s continuing efforts to keep interested stakeholders informed about leadership personnel changes at schools and at the district, the following schools will be posting openings for new principals in 2014-15: Mission Bay High School, Serra High School, SCPA, Twain High School, Bell Middle School, Balboa Elementary, Cabrillo Elementary, Carver Elementary, Field Elementary, Freese Elementary, Hancock Elementary, Jerabek Elementary and Loma Portal Elementary.

As these principal positions are filled, it may result in leadership changes at other schools. The district will continue to communicate future leadership changes as they may occur.

The principal selection process will continue to be a community-based, open process led by the area superintendents. The community process includes staff and parent input.

We encourage you to participate in this process by attending the meeting at your school site. Input from parents and staff is important to making sure the needs and focus of a school are reflected in its leadership. Parents and school site staff should receive a separate notification from their school with meeting details. Here is the full schedule of meetings:

Mission Bay High School: Monday, July 7, at 5 p.m.
SCPA: Wednesday, July 9, at 5 p.m.
Serra High School: Thursday, July 10, at 6 p.m.
