Several elementary school principals have been shuffled around Lodi Unified School District after approval by the board of trustees on Tuesday. Some are current principals while others are moving up from vice principal positions, and a few are returning to the district after a hiatus.

Here's the roundup:

Celeste Border will move from Reese Elementary School to Vinewood School. Current Vinewood Principal Scott McGregor will take on Lodi Middle School next year. This decision was made at a previous meeting. Taking Bordner's spot at Reese is Gary O'Dell.

Linda Denman will transfer from Washington Elementary to Westwood Elementary.

Dan Faith will move to Washington Elementary from Manlio Silva Elementary School.

Ben Koh will be promoted from vice principal to principal at Manlio Silva.

Michael Coughlin will be principal at Julia Morgan Elementary, up from vice principal.

Branden Krueger, a past principal at Creekside Elementary School, will return to a principalship at Larson Elementary. Current Larson principal Cheryl Nilmeyer is retiring.

Julie Vaz, current vice principal at Clairmont Elementary, will become principal at the site. Current principal Susan Hitchcock is retiring.

The new vice principal positions to fill in the open slots are not yet final.

Each new position begins on July 1.
