Assistant Principal Cheryl Lana will leave the district to take a job as a school principal in Oakland.
Lana's resignation was effective Thursday, she said in an email. She was one of three assistant principals at the school.
Her absence leaves another major vacancy at the high school;
The South San Francisco High School principal position is still unfilled, . Assistant Superintendent Bob Thompson, whose own retirement went into effect Thursday, said earlier this month that the district was midway through the hiring process to fill the South San Francisco High School position.
"For the past six years that I have been assistant principal at South San Francisco High School, I have been impressed by all of my colleagues and can attest to the fact that the students, parents, teachers, and all staff have been wonderful to work with," Lana said in an email. "I wish the larger school community and the district the best in the future. There are some truly dynamic and dedicated educators in South San Francisco."
