Leadership Changes at Cranberry Elementary School

Sarasota County, FL, February 17, 2023 – Please note the following changes to the leadership team at Cranberry Elementary School:

Effective today (Friday, February 17), Mr. Brad Porinchak will be transitioning to a Principal on Assignment position that will focus on essential initiatives assigned by the Interim Superintendent.

Ms. Linda Daniels – a highly experienced, valued, and well-known former Principal in our district – will serve as the Interim Principal of Cranberry Elementary, effective immediately, for the rest of the 2022-23 school year. A principal search for a permanent replacement will be conducted before the end of this school year. We will share more information about the principal search as it becomes available.

Once a new Principal is selected, Ms. Daniels and the school district team will assist to ensure that the school has a smooth, seamless transition & a strong start to the 2023-24 school year. We are thankful for the dynamic students, families, teachers, and staff members at Cranberry Elementary and their continued involvement in, and support of, their school community!



Dr. Brandon Johnson,

Executive Director of Elementary Schools
