Dear Clayton Valley Community,

It is my pleasure to introduce myself and join you as interim Executive Director of Clayton Valley Charter High School during this period of leadership transition.  I look forward to working with you on continuing to embrace the rigor, relevance and relationships framed in high achievements and expectations that this organization has accomplished.  The leadership transition process is not complicated.  My commitment to you will be doing this with ethical actions, transparency and a plan.

A little about the plan; I will be meeting with critical organizational stakeholders over the next few weeks for input and voice.  I will be meeting with both certificated and classified staff, parent and community groups, and administration to engage them in a process identifying critical issues and elements within the organization.  At that point, I will be taking that feedback to the Board to facilitate a 5-year strategic action plan that will be presented to the Board for adoption in August.  The action plan will guide the mission and vision of Clayton Valley Charter High School over the course of the next few years.  Additionally, we will be using this feedback from all stakeholder groups to assist in recruiting a visionary and dynamic leader to continue to take this organization on its journey to being a world-class school.

Below is a little bit of my background- you can also find more information on my web site,

Looking forward,
