Viera High’s Robinson named Assistant Principal of the Year

VIERA, Florida -- Viera High School’s Sarah Robinson has been named Brevard Public Schools’ Assistant Principal of the Year.  Robinson recently was promoted to principal at VHS, due in large part to her leadership there.


Robinson functioned as acting principal this past school year after former principal Mike Alba took a director’s position with the school district.  Although Robinson delegated a number of her assistant-principal tasks to other school leaders, she continued to take responsibility for curriculum, the focus of her assistant position. 


“She fulfilled both roles with excellence,” said BPS Superintendent Mark Mullins, citing the nomination letter.  “Mrs. Robinson has consistently demonstrated both the instructional and organization leadership needed to ensure student achievement and manage a large high school. Faculty development is a focus for her."


Candidates for BPS Assistant Principal of the Year were nominated and evaluated based on their performance on:

  • Student achievement
  • Instructional leadership
  • Faculty development
  • Learning environment
  • Organizational leadership
  • Leadership development
  • Communication


Robinson will be recognized by the Brevard County School Board at a meeting Aug.27.  Then, she will go on to interview in the state competition for Florida Assistant Principal of the Year.
