Calaine “Cal” Bacon, who has served as the Pasco School District’s assistant superintendent of teaching and learning since 2010, will retire at the end of June.
The district will hold an open house from 3:30 to 5 p.m. on May 29 at the administrative headquarters at 1215 W. Lewis St., to thank and recognize Bacon for her service, according to a release.
Bacon has been with Pasco since 1983, starting as a teacher at Edwin Markham Elementary School. She became an administrator in the mid-1990s and moved into the district’s main offices in 2003.
In her current position, she supervised Pasco’s 12 elementary schools and their principals as well as all the district’s nurses and counselors and visual and performing arts programs.
Liz Flynn, currently the district’s executive director of student achievement, will become assistant superintendent of instructional services. However, Bacon’s duties will be divided among Flynn and Pasco’s two other assistant superintendents, John Morgan and Glenda Cloud, said district spokeswoman Leslee Caul.
