Skyline High School’s principal selection committee can’t rest just yet.
I’ve just learned that Lauren Klaffky, the former Oakland High assistant principal picked for the job (see the OUSD personnel report here), has had second thoughts about leading Oakland’s largest high school.
I spotted the job listing on EdJoin this afternoon, posted June 30. OUSD spokesman Troy Flint confirmed that Klaffky will not take the Skyline post after all. He said she “had a change of heart” about the position.
I don’t know the back story, other than that some Skyliners weren’t satisfied with the pool of candidates. Now, of course, the pool is likely to be even smaller.
For those of you unfamiliar with the high school’s leadership history: Amy Hansen quit in August 2006, just before the school year began, leaving Skyline without a principal for weeks; Heidi Green resigned at the end of the 2007-08 year; and Al Sye was fired this year.
