BROOKSVILLE — Hernando High School assistant principal Brent Gaustad was named Monday as the new principal at Parrott Middle School.
It's the latest move in a series of administrative changes in the Hernando County school district.
Gaustad, 50, is taking over for Parrott principal Leechele Booker, who was tapped on July 18 to take over for Ken Pritz as principal at Hernando High. Pritz was appointed as the district's second assistant superintendent the day before.
And the administrative changes aren't over. The district will now need to find a new assistant principal at Hernando High.
Gaustad has been with the Hernando district for 18 years. He spent 10 years in the county from 1988 until 1988 before leaving. He rejoined the district in 2004.
He has been an assistant principal with Hernando since July 1, 2008, where he made $66,250 in his last year.
He will make $77,000 as Parrott's principal.
