FCSD Board of Education Approves Recommendation to Promote Ricardo Calles to Assistant Principal at FHS

Ricardo Calles was promoted to assistant principal at Fairfield High School after approval June 2 from the Fairfield Board of Education! He replaces Ryan Bellamy, who was recently promoted to FHS principal.

Ricardo is part of the FCSD Curriculum and Instruction Department's instructional specialist team, assisting with technology integration and world languages. He previously taught Spanish at the high school - the very school he attended as an EL student who could not speak English. He has certainly come a long way, having earned college degrees in education at Miami University and the University of Cincinnati.

Ricardo is the assistant/head coach of the cross country team and the track team assistant coach. He is also the FHS Spanish Club advisor.
He is a member of the FCSD Diversity Recruitment and Retention Committee and the Fairfield's Future Ready Team. His positive experience in the ESL program at Fairfield High School inspired him to create an ESL mentoring program at his church, where he also helps with translation.

We are excited to have Ricardo join the high school administrative team! His leadership, passion for education, and doing what is best for all students are among the reasons the FCSD leadership team is recommending him for the position.
