Flagler Schools Superintendent Cathy Mittelstadt announces a handful of leadership changes within the district Friday.
The first is the appointment of Bobby Bossardet as the next principal of Flagler-Palm Coast High School. He has previously served as the district’s Assistant Superintendent of Academic Services.
“I have heard the same thing each time we ask teachers, staff, students, and parents,” says Superintendent Mittelstadt. “They want someone who knows the culture and climate of FPC. That is exactly what Bobby brings to the table. He has served this district in a variety of roles over the years, but putting him at his alma mater perfectly matches a person’s abilities with the needs of the campus.”
Of the move from district administration back to campus administration, Bossardet says, “We have amazing things happening throughout our district and I believe in the vision moving forward. I have gained a whole new level of respect for the men and women working diligently behind the scenes at the district office for remaining focused and continuing to support our core mission of academic success throughout the last few very challenging years. I know exactly what the Bulldog family is capable of accomplishing, and I am extremely excited for the opportunity to return to FPC to help reestablish the standard for what Flagler Schools is all about.”
Superintendent Mittelstadt also announces current Chief of Operational Services Paul Peacock will be the next principal at Wadsworth Elementary School.
“Paul’s passion for the students is apparent to anyone who has seen him on our campuses,” says Superintendent Mittelstadt. “His years of leading Indian Trails Middle School and his vision for excellence will translate well at Wadsworth Elementary. He has shown the value of getting students, teachers, staff, and parents involved and how that creates a winning culture.”
Peacock adds, “I am excited to return to a campus where I can have that daily interaction with the students. They are why we do what we do.”
This means there are two important openings in the Superintendent’s senior cabinet. LaShakia Moore will move from Director of Teaching and Learning to Assistant Superintendent of Academic Services. David Freeman, who is the Director of Plant Services will become Chief of Operational Services.
