A committee has selected a new principal for Chatsworth High School, but it will lead to the transfer of one of its other administrators.
On Tuesday, the principal selection committee at Chatsworth High picked Dan Wyatt, an assistant principal at Sylmar High, from a pool of four finalists.
However, Wyatt's wife is a Chatsworth assistant principal, and administrators traditionally prevent situations where immediate family members would supervise one another, said Lawrence H. Moore, an administrator for the Chatsworth/Granada Hills Cluster Schools.
Donna Wyatt, Wyatt's wife, will move to another assignment to avoid appearances of nepotism or favoritism, Moore said.
It is not known what her new position and school will be, he said.
Dan Wyatt should start his new position later this month, said Moore.
