The Capistrano Unified School District Board of Trustees on Thursday voted unanimously in closed session to adopt the superintendent’s recommendation to offer Michael Halt reelection for the 2015-2016 school year.
Halt was ousted from his position as San Clemente High School principal last month under undisclosed circumstances, to the dismay of many parents and students who have since been protesting the decision and calling for an investigation into the matter.
The board’s decision came with a caveat that Halt will receive an alternative assignment, as a principal within CUSD but not at SCHS.
Halt will also be invited to attend the upcoming SCHS graduation ceremony.
