Monarch School Names New Principal

Dyane Plumly has been selected to serve as the Monarch School’s next principal.

Plumly, who joined the San Diego County Office of Education in 2009, has been serving as interim principal at Monarch for the past four months. Working with the Monarch, Innovation, and Juvenile Court and Community Schools (JCCS) teams, Dyane has been a key player in expanding the school’s academic focus and building meaningful partnerships with students, families, and partners.

“Dyane is the perfect leader to take Monarch to the next level,” said Erin English, executive director of Innovation. “She is a caring, thoughtful person who leads by empowering others to be the best they can be. She brings with her years of curriculum experience when she was serving in our JCCS program, and I am excited about Monarch's future under Dyane's leadership.”

Plumly most recently served as interim principal for the JCCS South region. She has also been a JCCS instructional coach, classroom teacher, and head teacher. Within JCCS, Plumly provided support to ensure student academic and socio-emotional learning; developed behavior interventions and supports; facilitated restorative meetings between students, staff, and community; and handled other administrative responsibilities.

“This year at Monarch, I am most excited to activate my background in curriculum and instruction to implement a K-12 instructional focus of literacy with an equity lens, while also building collaborative and positive relationships with students, staff, families, and partners to achieve our mission and vision,” Plumly said.

Plumly is a graduate of the University of Washington, where she earned a bachelor’s degree in English literature with a minor in women studies and a master’s in teaching. She also holds a master’s in teaching and learning with technology from Ashford University.
