Pasco school board set to appoint 3 new principals
LAND O' LAKES Principals are set to be named for three schools — Wiregrass Ranch High, Pasco High and Connerton Elementary — when the Pasco County School Board meets at 6 p.m. Tuesday.
In the case of Pasco High and Connerton, interim principals already at the schools are being promoted into the positions permanently.
The new principals are Robyn White at Wiregrass Ranch High, Kari Kadlub at Pasco High and Aimee Boltze at Connerton. All three appointments take effect Wednesday.
White, who has been an assistant principal at Wiregrass since 2006, succeeds Ray Bonti, who was promoted to an administrative position at the district offices.
White began her education career in 1986 as a teacher in Pinellas County and held various positions at Dunedin High School, including acting assistant principal, according to the school district.
She became an assistant principal at Wesley Chapel High in 2005 and moved to Wiregrass the next year.
White holds a bachelor's degree in mathematics education from the University of West Florida and a master's degree in curriculum and instruction from the University of South Florida.
Kadlub became interim principal at Pasco High in January when former principal Pat Reedy retired.
She began her career in Pasco in 1999 as a teacher at Wesley Chapel High. She later served as a staffing and compliance teacher in the district exceptional student education department.
In 2009, she was promoted to assistant principal at Zephyrhills High. She transferred to Wiregrass Ranch High in 2010 and then to Pasco High a year later.
Kadlub holds a bachelor's degree in special education and a master's degree in educational leadership, both from the University of South Florida.
Boltze became interim principal at Connerton in April when former principal Anna Falcone was suspended over allegations that she tried to get confidential information about a climate survey the district conducted at the school.
Superintendent Kurt Browning wants the school board to fire Falcone, but she has appealed and has a hearing scheduled before the board June 6.
Boltze began her education career as a teacher in Hillsborough County in 1996. A year later, she came to Pasco as a teacher at Denham Oaks Elementary.
She also taught at Seven Oaks Elementary and Double Branch Elementary before being named a resource specialist in the district's exceptional student education department in 2007.
Boltze also held the positions of supervisor of staff development, director of staff development and supervisor of human resources.
She holds a bachelor's degree in special education and a master's degree in educational leadership, both from the University of South Florida.
