San Diego Unified Announces Selection of New Interim Principal for Lincoln High School

SAN DIEGO (May 30, 2017) - The San Diego Unified School District will announce at this evening's general board meeting that Mr. Jose Soto-Ramos has been offered the opportunity to serve as the Interim Principal for the 2017-2018 school year at Lincoln High School.

The decision to select Soto-Ramos as the Interim Principal was a true collaborative effort and one that was made after careful consideration and discussions with a panel comprised of teachers, students, parents, community members and district officials.

As the Interim Principal, Soto-Ramos will play a lead role in continuing the academic success and collegial visions for Lincoln High School. This will be Soto-Ramos' first principalship.

Soto-Ramos has been the Vice-Principal at Lincoln High School for the past five years. Prior experience included serving as a San Diego Unified Mathematics Teacher, and as both a District Mathematics Coordinator and a Vice Principal in Texas. In addition, Soto-Ramose is a veteran of the United States Navy.

Throughout his five years at Lincoln High School, Soto-Ramos has developed a great bond with the students and families he serves, and he will continue to nurture those bonds in his new role. Soto-Ramos has demonstrated a strong commitment to solving problems using restorative approaches at both the student and community level, and his passion for Lincoln High School stems from his belief in the students and community.

The internal designation to appoint Soto-Ramos as the Interim Principal was based on the panel's recommendations to ensure that this new role would be paired with the necessary district supports for a successful school year.

Superintendent Cindy Marten notified the Board of her appointment in closed session earlier this afternoon.

At this time, San Diego Unified is no longer pursuing a candidate search to fill the Lincoln High School Principal position.
