Desert Hot Springs High School Principal Dr. Caroline Cota is stepping down.
Cota made the announcement in a letter to parents at DHSHS on Wednesday.
âIt is with mixed emotions that I share with you that I accepted a promotion position in another school district,â Cota wrote in his letter. “It has been an honor to serve as Principal of Desert Hot Springs High School, and I am grateful for the opportunity I have had to work with our families and community members toward our shared vision.”
Cota first joined DHSHS in 2018.
She was born in Belgium and immigrated to the United States at the age of 13. She has been an educator for 22 years. Cota received his BA in Psychology from UCLA, MA in Special Education from National University, and PhD in Educational Leadership from Azusa Pacific University.
There was no word on which school district Cota was heading to. Cota’s last day has yet to be established. Stay with News Channel 3 for ongoing updates.
A survey has been launched for parents to share their feedback as the district plans to transition to a new principal.
