Principal's promotion to spark hiring

LAND O' LAKES - Sand Pine Elementary School is in the market for a principal.

Todd Cluff, who has led the school since 2010, is in line to become one of the Pasco County school district's learning community executive directors, a position Superintendent Kurt Browning created shortly after taking office.

The school board is scheduled to vote on Cluff's promotion Tuesday.

Pasco has four learning community executive directors who are assigned to oversee schools based on geographic areas. Cluff, the final director appointed, will be responsible for schools in east Pasco County.

The other directors are Beth Brown for southwest Pasco schools, Monica Ilse for northwest Pasco schools and Dave Scanga for central Pasco schools.

In the past, the school district had assistant superintendents responsible for schools based on whether they were elementary, middle or high schools. When Browning took office in November, he began reorganizing the district's administration and grouped the schools by geography instead.

Cluff began his education career as a teacher in Hillsborough County in 1991. He also worked as a district trainer for Hillsborough schools and a state trainer providing school improvement instruction and training for the Florida Department of Education.

He came to the Pasco school district in 2000 as a supervisor of staff development. In 2007, he became assistant principal at Sand Pine Elementary and later was promoted to the principal position.

Cluff holds bachelor's and master's degrees from the University of South Florida.
