Not only Hart but HPMS will also be looking for a new principal this coming school year. My hope is that there is a real process in place. In the past PUSD puts in a retired principal as an interim to fill the void. I do have a problem with the practice of double dipping once you retire. This practice is alive and well at PUSD, as is the practice of hiring family. I have never seen so many husbands,wives, and children of employees work in one place. The nepotism in this district might be part of our problem. I hope we can break this cycle and bring in some new blood and rebuild our school district.

Unspecified personnel reasons is code for run off by the teacher's union and spineless school board. What we really need is a meeting to discuss how we can get a school board that doesn't cave to every whine and whimper of the teacher's union.

Good luck, Mrs. C. You were one of the best principals we've had in our 14-year PUSD career. Reasonable, staunch supporter of students, transparent and mighty resolve. So sad to see you pushed out. Huge loss to the students and community.

Sad to see Mrs. Conde go. It is rare to meet a principal so committed to putting students first. See where that gets you in the PUSD? I have no doubt she will land on her feet. She is a moral, upstanding person with a heart of gold.
