An interim principal has been named to lead Pasco High School after longtime Principal Pat Reedy retires.
The Pasco County School Board on Tuesday evening approved the appointment of Assistant Principal Kari Kadlub to lead the school at least temporarily, based on a recommendation by Superintendent Kurt Browning.
Her appointment will be effective Jan. 1.
Reedy, who has been the high school's principal since 1999, announced last month he planned to retire after more than 33 years with the school district.
Kadlub has worked for Pasco schools since 1999, when she was hired as a teacher at Wesley Chapel High School. In 2005, she became a staffing and compliance teacher in the district Exceptional Student Education Department.
She was promoted to assistant principal at Zephyrhills High in 2009 and also served as an assistant principal at Wiregrass Ranch High before moving to her current position in 2011.
Kadlub holds a bachelor's degree in special education and a master's degree in educational leadership, both from the University of South Florida.
Also on Tuesday, the school board approved the appointment of Julie Hedine as director of the Food and Nutrition Services Department. She succeeds Rick Kurtz, who is retiring.
