NEVADA CITY, Calif. May 31, 2019 – Statement by Board President Sandy Hakala:

I am pleased to announce that Deer Creek Elementary School Principal Monica Daugherty has been appointed to serve as Interim Superintendent of the Nevada City School District for the 2019-2020 school year. Ms. Daugherty is an experienced and qualified school administrator, and long-time employee of the District. As the District prepares for Superintendent Trisha Dellis’ departure in June, the Board of Trustees took action at a special meeting on May 29, 2019 to appoint Ms. Daugherty to ensure a continuity of quality leadership during this transition period. Ms. Daugherty’s appointment as Interim Superintendent for the 2019-2020 school year will be finalized upon the approval of an employment contract at the Board’s next regular meeting on June 11, 2019.

In the meantime, the District will immediately begin the process of posting for a qualified and experienced Principal to lead Deer Creek Elementary School during the 2019-2020 school year.
