Del Mar Union School District searching for new Torrey Hills principal

By Karen Billing

Torrey Hills School Principal Barbara Boone is leaving the Del Mar Union School District (DMUSD) after being selected as the new director of curriculum and instruction for the San Diego County Office of Education.

“Mrs. Boone has been a treasured principal at Torrey Hills School and we will miss her greatly in our district,” said DMUSD Superintendent Holly McClurg in a letter to the community. “The district is committed to finding another wonderful principal to lead Torrey Hills.”

The district is undergoing the selection process for finding a new principal and McClurg said she hopes to bring a candidate before the school board at its Dec. 18 meeting. Boone will remain in place until the new principal is hired.

“We want to make sure we get the very best possible person,” said McClurg.

A community meeting will be held on Dec. 5 at 6:30 p.m. at Torrey Hills to gather input on the new principal. Community members may also give input through a survey posted on the Torrey Hills School website:
