Brittan Acres Principal Appointed

We are pleased to announce that the SCSD Board appointed three principals at the board meeting last night.  

First, we want to thank the many volunteers who served on several panels of teachers, parents, classified staff and administrators to conduct interviews over the past two months. Our administrative team skillfully facilitated a thorough interview process and led thoughtful discussions about the strengths and qualities of the candidates. Selected finalists were moved forward to the District Cabinet team for consideration.  Each appointee was carefully considered and each brings with them varied experiences that will contribute greatly to the success of their schools and to our newly formed leadership team. We congratulate all three principal appointees and know you will join us in giving them all a warm welcome to the San Carlos School District community!
