LAND O'LAKES — Two vacant Pasco County school principal jobs have drawn some keen interest among applicants, after some past openings brought in only scant numbers.
Pine View Elementary School in Land O'Lakes attracted 13 candidates for the post, which became available after Judy Cosh accepted the principal job at Gulf Highlands Elementary.
Among the group are two current school leaders, including Nicole Reynolds, whose Shady Hills Elementary is closing for renovations. Fox Hollow Elementary principal Lisa Miller also applied, along with assistant principals Scott Atkins, Tracey Bruno, Megan Hermansen, Holly Oakes, Sharon Sacco, Dawn Scilex, Erika Tonello, Heather Wallen and Rebecca Younglove; as well as former Martin County principal Timothy Romano and Pinellas Preparatory Academy principal Joell Ramsdell.
Wiregrass Ranch High School got four resumes to replace Ray Bonti, who won promotion to the district office earlier this spring. The candidates include current Wiregrass Ranch assistant principal Robyn White, River Ridge High assistant principal Steve Williams, Sunlake High assistant principal Marcy Maxwell and Romano, whose wife recently was offered the Hernando County superintendency.
The district expects to fill these and several other principal positions in the coming weeks as it prepares for the 2013-14 school year.
