New principal selected for Pasco's Rushe Middle School



data.jpegRushe Middle School in Land O'Lakes has been without a principal since Dave Estabrook retired two months ago.

Today, superintendent Heather Fiorentino named  Dave Salerno (shown) to run the school. Salerno's selection leaves Seven Springs Middle School needing a new leader.

Salerno, a Pasco schools employee for 20 years, joined Seven Springs Middle in 2008 after a stint as supervisor of teacher recruitment and time as a teacher and assistant principal at other schools. While at Seven Springs, the school has consistently earned an A in the state's school grading system even as the school's percentage of low-income student has increased.

The School Board is scheduled to take up Salerno's appointment Tuesday evening.
