Never mind that job ad for a high school principal in Pasco



Job seekers visiting the Pasco County school district's employment website have might have found an ad again seeking candidates to lead Marchman Technical Education Center. The post has been open for a few months, since principal Sheila Bryan's retirement, and it's been advertised a few times in hopes of snaring a top applicant.

But the ad isn't supposed to be there anymore.

Assistant superintendent Amelia Larson told the Gradebook that the administration received several "excellent" applications already and is not looking for more. Six candidates interviewed on Wednesday, and three more are set to make their case on Monday. Three finalists will advance to meetings with the superintendent and his key staff, with a selection to follow shortly after.

Bottom line: If you're not already in the pipeline, don't try now. But if you want to lead a Pasco school, there's still a chance. The top job at River Ridge Middle School has not yet been filled.
