Principal Deborah Brayton informed parents at Pioneer Elementary on Wednesday that she will be leaving in June.

“It is with regret I am informing you of my resignation as principal of Pioneer Elementary School starting in the 2013-2014 school year,” Brayton wrote.

Hired five years ago, Brayton said she is pursuing employment closer to her home in Petaluma, and is considering a job out of the country in two years.

“It has been a privilege to work in such an outstanding school with such wonderful students, committed parents and staff,” she wrote. “The dedication and hours of work and energy put in by the PTA to support students and school programs have been excellent. The faculty and staff of Pioneer put in long extra hours to ensure that your children receive a top-notch education as well as support them in the journey of growing up.

“Thank you to the staff, our students and families for all your support, passion and interest in education. Each group, and each person within, has continued to reinforce the importance of all of us supporting students to grow as a team. There will be so many wonderful memories to carry in my heart as I go forward in my educational career.”

The principal pledged to continue to serve the Pioneer community “with the same effort, attention and caring that I have strived for on a daily basis” during the last months of this school year. She also pledged to make sure the transition to new leadership is as seamless as possible.

The school district’s human resources office also posted online an opening for the position of Davis High School principal on Wednesday. The district will be taking applications through March 26. The position has an annual salary range from $85,000 to $115,000.

Earlier this month, current Davis High Principal Jacqui Moore told The Enterprise she will not return in the fall. On March 7, the Davis school board announced a closed-session decision, on a unanimous vote, to release Moore effective at the end of the school year.

Several DHS teachers, including former Davis Teachers Association president Jerry DeCamp, offered public comment before that closed session, praising Moore’s job performance.
