Two Longtime Principals Set to Leave LCUSD

The La Cañada Unified School District announced that two elementary school principals, Amy Marcoullier and Emily Blaney, will be leaving during its meeting on May 9.
“I would just like to give some heartfelt thanks to two of our principals,” said LCUSD Superintendent Wendy Sinnette.
Palm Crest Elementary Principal Marcoullier, who has been at LCSUD for six years, announced in the last several weeks that she will be accepting a position at Franklin Elementary School in Glendale.
“Amy has been awesome and has done a variety of things and done it so well. … [She is] somebody who really understands curriculum, instruction, attention to staff, responsiveness to parents and she’ll be missed,” said Sinnette.
Marcoullier served multiple years as an assistant principal at Palm Crest, and then she went to the high school and served as an assistant principal there and returned to Palm Crest as principal.
La Cañada Elementary Principal Blaney will also be moving along from LCUSD and will be the new principal for Arroyo Vista Elementary School in South Pasadena.
“She has been instrumental at leading LCE for eight years, and came in and was nurturing, used all of her incredible skills in terms of understanding
how to support teachers, how to support students, how to work with parents and really build
the culture and the academic excellence at LCE,” said Sinnette.
“We will miss them, and they have just been wonderful people to work with and to call esteemed colleagues,” said Sinnette.
LCUSD has scheduled a full slate of top-notch candidates for full-day interviews, with two panels, a technical panel and an instructional panel, along with a writing prompt, to replace the outgoing principals. The district is still in the process of selecting two new leaders.
“We always want to give people the accolades that they deserve as they leave us, but there’s always excitement about welcoming new folks to the district,” said Sinnette.
“Lots of change, but the team’s on it, and we appreciate all the proactiveness. … I look forward to see how we end up on those two positions,” said LCUSD Board President Joe Radabaugh.
