Principal's Message

July 1, 2023

Message from Superintendent Dr. Pulver:

I am delighted to announce that, following an extensive and thorough selection process, we have chosen Mr. Eddie Courtemarche to serve as the next principal of McAuliffe Middle School. Eddie is well-known to our Los Al USD community as he currently serves as an assistant principal at Los Alamitos High School. Eddie emerged as the top candidate from a pool of highly qualified individuals, participating in a competitive selection process that involved input from various stakeholders, including certificated and classified staff, parents, Board of Education Members, and administration. As Dr. Ryan Weiss-Wright transitions into his new role within the District, Eddie will work closely with him and the McAuliffe staff to ensure a seamless leadership transition. 

Mr. Courtemarche will be formally recognized by the Board of Education as the new McAuliffe Principal at the Board of Education Meeting on June 27, 2023 and will officially begin his new role on July 1.
