Claremont welcomes new SAHS principal Sean Delgado

At their Thursday, August 2 meeting, the Claremont Unified School District Board of Education voted to confirm a new principal of the San Antonio High School and Community Day School as recommended by the district.

Sean Delgado—whose last post was a 2-year tenure as the vice-principal of Nogales High School in La Puente–will be helming the local continuation school. 

Before that, Mr. Delgado, a resident of Chino Hills, served as assistant principal at Don Lugo High School during the 2010-2011 school year. Kevin Ward, assistant superintendent of human services, noted that Mr. Delgado’s qualifications were so impressive that he had risen to the top of a pool of 40 candidates.

After applying for the position, Mr. Delgado said he drove through the San Antonio campus and “felt a strange connection with the school.”  He is delighted that his feeling proved correct and he landed the job.

“I wanted to thank each and everyone of you. I can’t tell you how excited I am to be part of your team,” Mr. Delgado said.

The former principal of San Antonio High School, Steven Boyd, who served as the continuation school’s head administrator for 9 years, will be taking on a new position this fall at the district office. He has been tasked with helping the Claremont Unified School District assess and fulfill its technology needs as the district transitions to the Common Core, a new form of assessment that California schools will begin to use in 2015.
