Pasco looks for eSchool principal

24

August

Earlier this summer, when establishing job allocations, the Pasco School Board raised pointed questions about the creation of a new principal position for the county's virtual school.

Up to this point, the eSchool has been managed by JoAnne Glenn, who was given the official title of assistant principal. When board members saw the change in their documents, they had two questions: Would the eSchool keep an assistant principal and gain a principal? And, what would happen to Glenn?

Superintendent Heather Fiorentino assured members that the school would continue to have just one administrator, only with a beefed up title to reflect increasing job responsibilities. The eSchool's enrollment has exceeded many county high schools' student counts. She also said the plan was to keep Glenn, just giving her a promotion.

Now the district has posted an ad on its website seeking an eSchool principal. Does this mean Glenn, who's highly regarded and has been sought after by other districts, is on her way out?

No one is saying. Glenn did not respond to e-mails seeking comment. And district spokeswoman Summer Roberton sent us a cryptic comment to the question.

"We have reached a point with growth that eSchool requires a full-time Principal," Roberston said. "We look forward to ensuring that we hire the right person for this exciting new job."

Interested in applying? The deadline is Monday.
