Principals take on additional responsibilities at Rancho Santa Fe School


By Karen Billing

The Rancho Santa Fe School District has made some moves to replace Cindy Schaub, the assistant superintendent of educational services who left for a new position in the South Bay Union School District earlier this month. RSF School District Superintendent Lindy Delaney said that principals Kim Pinkerton and Garrett Corduan have stepped up with some new responsibilities, the board approving salaries with new stipends at its Aug. 21 meeting.

Both principals will now receive an annual salary of $135,000 each.

Additionally, the district has hired a math coach and literacy support teachers to help fill in the role Schaub performed.

Delaney said that while the changes will help the district continue to move in a great direction, Schaub will be missed.

“She took our curriculum a long way in the last eight years,” Delaney said. “We wish her the best of luck, it’s definitely different not having her here.”

Schaub is already at work in her new district, but Delaney said they plan to invite her back in the coming month for the staff to recognize and thank her for her service.
