Felicia Williams (right) resigned this month, to be replaced on an interim basis by TOSA Marchelle Hasan (left).

Maricopa Unified School District is looking for another principal.

After 10 years as principal of Saddleback Elementary School, Felicia Williams submitted her resignation June 13. Her last day was Friday.

“I have been offered a position outside of MUSD that is in the best interest of my family,” she wrote.

Wednesday, the Maricopa Unified School District Governing Board accepted the resignation without docking her a contract assessment with less than a month before the next school year starts.

The board approved Marchelle Hasan as interim principal at the campus. She has been teacher on special assignment (TOSA) at Saddleback since 2013.

Hasan has a doctorate in educational leadership, a master’s degree in education/curriculum and instruction and a Bachelor of Science in elementary education. She has more than 18 years of experience in education.

Deputies allegedly found 53 marijuana plants in a house east of Maricopa.

Pinal County Sheriff’s Office served a search warrant on a house in Saddleback Farms. Besides the plants, deputies uncovered “equipment connected to a growing operation,” according to spokesperson Navideh Forghani.

The location is between the Ak-Chin Airport and the Casa Grande city limits. No other information is available at this time.
