The Santa Barbara school board approved three new elementary school principals this week. Two have worked in the district before. At the helm of McKinley will be Jacqueline Mora, who has served as a principal at a college prep school in San Francisco and at an elementary school in Glendale. Veronica Binkley will take over Harding. Binkley comes from Oxnard and has worked as an assistant principal, multi-school principal, and education consultant for many schools, including Harding. Sierra Loughridge, now principal at Washington, has been overseeing 10 elementary school campuses and one junior high as the district’s child development and after-school program coordinator. Previously, she worked in administrative and teaching positions in the area and in New York City.
