Muirlands Middle School teachers, staff and foundation members bid farewell to Principal Chris Hargrave at a going away luncheon in the school library March 21. Hargrave had been principal since 2003 and moves along to the San Diego Unified School District’s Office of Leadership Development. Reporting to SDUSD Superintendent Cindy Marten, Hargrave will help train new administrators and principals in the Common Core Curriculum the state adopted and will implement, and will work with the six area superintendents to create a cohesive school system.
New Muirlands principal, Harlan Klein, began his job on March 25. Klein was formerly principal at Innovations Middle School in Clairemont. Before that, he was the principal at the Toler Elementary School in Bay Park.
