In a letter sent home to parents in the Belmont-Redwood Shores School District Monday, co-superintendents Nellie Hungerford and Suzanne Roy announced that Ralston Middle School principal Scott Carson would not be returning for the 2013-14 school year.
The letter did not specify the reason for Carson’s departure, but did state that after deliberations, the district’s board of trustees directed staff to begin the search for a new principal so that one will be in place for the 2013-14 school year. It also stated that Carson and the Ralston leadership team would be working to ensure a smooth completion to the school year.
Carson served as principal for the 2012-13 school year.
Upon taking the job at Ralston last May, Carson said he believed “Strong leadership requires the ability to listen to all stakeholders, forge alliances among disparate groups, and leverage a site’s strengths to assist in areas that need development.”
Prior to Ralston, Carson was the principal at a K-8 school in Pacifica.
