Lucia Mar Unified School District Superintendent Jim Hogeboom announced two more staffing changes today.
Harloe Elementary Principal Chuck Fiorentino will become the principal of Paulding Middle School, and Jim Empey, currently Paulding Middle School’s assistant principal, will lead Harloe Elementary.
Both moves still need school board approval, Hogeboom wrote on his blog on the school district’s website.
Fiorentino has led Harloe Elementary for three years, and previously held the top spot at Branch and Dana elementary schools.
Empey has worked as assistant principal at Paulding for two years, and previously served as an area administrator at Arroyo Grande High and as a science teacher.
“I believe both Chuck and Jim are the most qualified candidates to lead each school forward,” Hogeboom wrote.
The likely moves follow several other changes that Lucia Mar students will see in the fall.
In May, district administrators announced that Dana Elementary School Principal Paul Jarvis will move to Mesa Middle School, and Jeff Martin, who is in his 10th year at the middle school, four of those as principal, will lead Grover Heights Elementary.
Grover Heights Principal Jennifer Bowen has decided to return to teaching. The Dana Elementary slot will be filled by Branch Elementary Principal Stacey Russell.
