The Del Mar Union School District is in the process of hiring a new principal for Carmel Del Mar School. Former principal Eileen Delaney announced on July 15 that she has accepted a position in the Tustin Unified School District. Delaney had been the principal at the school since 2011.

“I have had a wonderful experience during my years at Carmel Del Mar School,” wrote Delaney in a letter to the school community. “I have made strong relationships and I have enjoyed seeing children be so successful. I wish you continued success for your children in the future.”

Jason Romero, assistant superintendent of human resources, said the district hopes to have a new principal in the position by the beginning of August.
