Good Afternoon Jasper School Community,
You may be aware that Jasper Elementary School has been guided by TAP Curtis Quanstrom the last couple of weeks as Dr. Acosta took some time away from her responsibilities. This leadership transition will remain in place for the remainder of the school year.
Effective Tuesday, February 9, 2021, Mr. Quanstrom will step in as Interim Principal. We are fortunate to have his ongoing leadership, and recognize his deep roots in the Alta Loma community. Mr Quanstrom was a teacher at Jasper for seven years prior to becoming a Teaching Assistant Principal at Hermosa and eventually returning as Jasper’s TAP in July of 2018.
In addition, retired ALSD principal Stephanie DeVisser has agreed to join the team as an Interim TAP. Stephanie will provide outstanding instructional and administrative support for Jasper students, parents, and staff.
We are confident that the Jasper school community is in good hands with Mr. Quanstrom and with the shared leadership model in place at the school. With your commitment and partnership, we will work together to make this change as smooth as possible, keeping our students at the center of our focus. I know that you will join me in extending a note of appreciation for Dr. Acosta’s efforts during her tenure at Jasper. Please be assured that the work staff is doing on behalf of students will continue to be prioritized, and they will have the full support of the team at the District Support Center.
