Assistant Principal David Rice has accepted the position of Interim Middle School Principal at the Ross School, and will not be returning to Tam. Principal J.C. Farr sent out an email addressed to students and parents regarding his departure.

Rice was a teacher and assistant principal with the Tam Union High School District (TUHSD). At Tam, he was the Social Studies Teacher Leader for one year, the Associated Student Body co-director for four years and the Yearbook Advisor for six years, in addition to being an assistant principal at Drake.

Since his departure, Mr. Farr has been in contact with Human Resources and Educational Services to find a replacement. Currently Angela Gramlick, Wendy Stratton and Mr. Farr are covering Mr. Rice’s caseload (last names O-Z).

“David has been an outstanding professional.…We wish him well in his future endeavor,” Farr wrote in the email.
