Hillsborough schools get new principals



Armwood High School principal Michael Ippolito has been transferred to Tampa Bay Technical High School.

Superintendent MaryEllen Elia announced his transfer at Tuesday's School Board meeting, along with several other principal transfers and appointments.

Ippolito presided over Armwood during a troubled year in which a cheating scandal forced the school to forfeit its state football championship. Nothing was said about football at Tuesday's board meeting.

Among the other moves:

  • Michael Bobo, assistant principal of Franklin Boys Preparatory School, will be principal of Giunta Middle School.
  • Henry Lefler, principal of Pierce Middle School, will be principal of Memorial Middle School.
  • Anna Voida, principal of Shields Middle School, will move to Pierce Middle School.
  • Joann Johnson, principal of Jennings Middle School, will move to Smith Middle School.
