Bill Roderick is no longer principal of Placer High School. Jeff Tooker, assistant principal of Del Oro High took over that position Monday. "We placed Bill Roderick on paid leave," Bart O'Brien, Placer Union High School District superintendent said Monday evening. "Jeff Tooker is going to cover as principal." O'Brien would not elaborate further, but said Tooker was not interested in permanently remaining in the Placer position, and a search for a new principal would begin. "The search is wide open," O'Brien said.
