Greetings Panther students and families,
I am excited to welcome you to the 21-22 school year. It has been an honor to serve as the Newark Unified Principal of Alternative Education for the past four years. I look forward to celebrating my fifth year as your principal and my 26th year in high school education. As our district has communicated, we will be returning in-person for the 21-22 school year. We know that we will work together as a Panther family to ensure everyone stays healthy and safe.
It is a great source of pride for all of your Panther staff that we received our full school accreditation from WASC last school year. We received a maximum six-year term that validates our mission, vision, and efforts. WASC will return this winter to see how we've adapted to all the changes and will provide feedback on how we can best serve our students and families. I encourage all Panthers and their parents/guardians to be active participants in this process and in all our work together this year.
Principal, Alternative Education
