Principal DeWitt will leave SRHS
Parents of students received an email notification on Monday morning, Jan. 27, announcing that Scripps Ranch High School (SRHS) Principal Nicole DeWitt will leave SRHS on Feb. 18 to begin a position as an Interim Instructional Support Officer for the Office of Leadership and Learning with the San Diego Unified School District. Dr. Matt Lawson will serve as interim principal, according to the message.
Here is the text of the email from DeWitt:
Dear Falcon Families,
Over the past few years, I have thoroughly enjoyed working with the parents, students, and staff of Scripps Ranch High School. Scripps Ranch is an amazing place and I am truly honored to work with such a passionate community committed to providing the best possible education for our students.
Beginning on February 18th, I will continue to support SRHS, as well as other school sites, as an Interim Instructional Support Officer for the Office of Leadership and Learning. The Interim Instructional Support Officer position is a temporary position that I have been asked to fill until a formal candidate search can be conducted. In this role, I will primarily be assisting all of the high schools in San Diego Unified and will use the knowledge I have gained as the principal of Scripps Ranch High School to collaborate with my colleagues as we work to create safe and inclusive schools where all students can learn and thrive.â€‹â€‹
During this time of transition, Dr. Matt Lawson will serve as interim principal. Vice Principal Roldofo Parra will continue to oversee his same responsibilities for students with last names A-L, while educational specialist, Amy Hines, will serve as an interim Vice Principal for students with last names M-Z.
The decision to move into this temporary role for the district was an extremely difficult one, however, I do look forward to continuing to support SRHS as an Interim Instructional Support Officer and will be visiting the campus throughout the remainder of this school year to assist the admin team.
Thank you for your support, kind words, and faith in my leadership. I wish all of you the very best and will continue to be part of your Falcon family!
