Carlsbad High Principal Granted Transfer Request

The search is on for a new principal at Carlsbad High School. A news release from the school district says Adam Amador has requested a voluntary transfer, which the district has granted effective November 1st. In the meantime,. Amador has requested a time of personal leave, which was granted. District Spokesperson Natasha Mackey said that another position within the district will be found for Amador, but that exact position has not yet been determined. No interim principal has been named yet, but that is expected to happen soon, Mackey said. Amador became the focus of controversy when local District Judge Lisa Riley accused him of attempting to impede a pro-gun rally back in May. Riley’s daughter had attended the high school. Amador then fired back, accusing Riley of using a racial slur in a letter to the Carlsbad School Board.
