Wednesday, April 10—
Ramona Elementary Principal Phyllis Munoz will retire at the end of the school year, Superintendent Robert Graeff announced today.
During her nine years as Ramona Elementary principal, Munoz’s leadership “has helped transform the school to an institution fully devoted to student success—evidenced by a soaring API score and the school’s most recent California Title 1 Academic Achievement Award,” Graeff said in his announcement.
“Through a close relationship with California State University at San Marcos and San Marcos Elementary School, RE adopted several methodologies unique to our school district, including GLAD (Guided Language Acquisition Design), Fetzer writing, Team Time, and more,” he said.
A recent highlight for Munoz is her award last year as the Association of California School Administrators Elementary Principal of the Year for all of San Diego County and Imperial County, “a source of pride for the entire school district,” Graeff added, encouraging district employees to “wish her well as she moves on the next adventure in her life.”
