Paso Robles High School’s principal has announced he will be leaving at the end of the school year.
According to the Paso Robles Joint Unified School District, Eric Martinez is leaving to be closer to family.
“We are sad to see him go, but value his decision and wish him and his family the very best,” according to a district post on Facebook.
Martinez has served as principal at the high school since the start of the 2016-17 school year.
The district says students, staff and parents will have input on Martinez’s replacement and hopes to have someone approved mid-March.
The principal’s departure comes less than two months after Chris Williams announced his resignation from district superintendent.
Two other district employees – Kristin Shouse, director of student services, and Rich Clayton, director of athletics – also resigned at that time.
