New principal needed for Pasco's Paul R. Smith Middle School

The Pasco County school district advertised Thursday for a new principal at Paul R. Smith Middle School in Holiday.

The current principal, Susan Seibert, is leaving the post for personal reasons. Seibert, who has led the school since 2014, will take an assistant principal job at another school.

She was an assistant principal at Paul R. Smith before moving into the top spot, following the retirement of Margie Fackelman. Paul R. Smith Middle has had three principals since opening in 2006.

The school serves a largely low-income area of southwest Pasco County. It has had average student performance, according to the state's accountability system, earning a C grade in each of the past four years.

The application period for the post closes Wednesday.
