Jacqui Moore, the principal at Davis High School, will be moving on at the end of the school year.

Moore confirmed Saturday that she will not returning as principal in the fall. She cited “philosophical differences” between herself and the Davis Board of Education, but politely declined to elaborate.

Moore also noted that this is an extremely busy time at Davis High, with an accreditation visit from the Western Association of Schools and Colleges coming up, work under way to craft a master schedule for the 2013-14 school year and ongoing training of the high school’s teaching staff for implementation of the new Common Core academic standards.

Add to that a possible discussion at the school board level in coming weeks about moving ninth-grade students from their current assignment at the district’s junior high campuses to Davis High, which could impact the district’s other high school programs as well.

Moore said she is looking forward to wrapping up as many of these big projects as possible between now and the conclusion of the academic year.

Contacted by The Enterprise, Davis Board of Education president Sheila Allen said, “There is no current plan to release any classified or certificated employee before the end of the school year, and the administration is bringing forward an annual review of administrators at this Thursday’s board meeting. If there is a decision, there will be a public announcement at that time” when the school board comes out of closed session.

Moore came to the Davis school district as DHS principal in August 2010. She previously had been vice principal at Florin High School in the Elk Grove Unified School District.

March and April are the prime hiring period for school administrators, when districts typically interview candidates for open positions for principals and vice principals. In the past, when the principal’s job at Davis High has been vacant, the district has sometimes appointed an interim principal from within the district when the initial pool of applicants did not produce a successful candidate.
