Pasco Wesley Chapel High loses an assistant principal unexpectedly



Scott Davey lasted a quarter at Wesley Chapel High School.

The school's staff learned Friday morning that the assistant principal, who took an unrequested transfer to Wesley Chapel in the summer, had moved on to a teaching post in Hillsborough County. Absent from the school since late last week, Davey's name was taken off his former office door, and his responsibilities reassigned to other administrators.

Principal Carin Hetzler-Nettles said the school, which is in the middle of teacher evaluations, would get by.

"Losing an administrator is always difficult, and we will do our best to rehire quickly," she said via email. "We have currently distributed his tasks to current administrators here at WCHS, and are fortunate to have two administrative interns to assist us with numerous roles and responsibilities."

Davey, who worked for Pasco schools since 2007, was forced out of Zephyrhills High in June amid a major administrative overhaul at the school following a spring of discontent. Superintendent Kurt Browning said at the time he hoped the move would help Davey grow as an administrator.
