MVHS names new principal

by Nick Veronin

Mountain View High School has a new principal.

Dave Grissom is expected to be appointed at the May 28 meeting of the district's board of trustees, the Mountain View-Los Altos Union High School District announced in a press release.

Grissom, who is leaving his current position as principal of Santa Clara High School, is replacing Keith Moody, who was recently appointed to head up the MVLA Adult Education program.

The new principal rose to the top of a large pool of 51 candidates, according to the district press release.

"I cannot adequately express how thrilled I am to be joining the Mountain View High School community," Grissom said in the release. "I have always been extremely impressed with the students and staff that I have come into contact with from Mountain View, and to now be a member of that community is an absolute dream come true."

A welcoming reception was scheduled to be held for Grissom at the MVHS library on May 23 at 4 p.m.

So this is really interesting:

Santa Clara Unified is now run by a bunch of crazy autocrats who are anti charter school and pro autocratic rule. Sound familiar? In fact they are in cahoots with are own local LASD autocrats. Sadly some really great people were running for the Santa Clara Unified School District Board but they didn't win. The end result is a huge mess. I hiope the same thing doesn't happen here.

Don't miss out on the discussion!
