From an April 1st letter from Superintendent Edwards written to the parents, teachers and staff of the Clairemont community…
I am writing this letter to inform you that Dr. Graneze Scott will not be returning as principal for the upcoming school year.
In the next week or so, I will be advertising to fill the position. As has been our custom over the years, I will ask the members of the School Leadership Team and some faculty members to serve on the interview committee.
Naturally, it is important that we keep to a rater stringent timeline. The first step will be the development of a list of desired criteria and qualities. I will ask the School Leadership Team and faculty to assist in the development of these criteria.
Two years ago, when we went through this process, I asked the interview team to provide me the top two candidates to interview. We will follow this practice with the final decision for the choice of principal resting with the Superintendent of Schools.
Ms. Caroline Wood, Director of Human Resources, will be lead person from the Central Office. See will keep you posted from this point forward.
Over the next few months, please let Dr. Scott know your well wishes for her as she moves forward in new endeavors.
Dr. Phyllis Edwards
Thanks to Diane for pointing this out. There was a mention of this in the Superintendent’s letter to the school board for this coming week’s meeting, but I never followed up on it.
