RSF School District Welcomes David Jaffe as Superintendent

Tagged in

Rancho Santa Fe School District's new superintendent, David Jaffe, who is replacing outgoing superintendent Lindy Delaney, is set to begin work on August 1. Delaney officially led her last school board meeting on July 14.

The Rancho Santa Fe Review reports:

"Jaffe comes to the RSF School District from Torrey Pines High School, where he was principal for the past three years. In his 20 years of education experience, Jaffe has served as an assistant principal at Diegueno Middle School and La Costa Canyon High, the founding principal at Canyon Crest Academy, and San Dieguito Union High School District’s executive director of curriculum and instruction.

After Jaffe was announced as a finalist June 13, RSF School District Board of Trustees President Tyler Seltzer said the response has been 'overwhelmingly positive' and he is very happy with where they wound up after a nationwide superintendent search conducted by Leadership and Associates.

At the meeting, the board approved a five-month agreement with departing Superintendent Lindy Delaney to act as a special advisor to Jaffe.

Delaney was emotional in what would be her last time leading the school board meeting. She fought through tears to make a statement at the conclusion of the meeting, thanking school boards past and present for allowing her to serve.

'It’s been such a highlight of my life, it’s been such a big part of my life. I’ve loved it,' Delaney said.

Delaney was first hired as a teacher in 1986 by Dr. R. Roger Rowe and spent 30 years as a teacher, coach and administrator."
