Mountain View High School students will have a new principal when classes start up in the fall.
The Mountain View Los Altos Union High School District Board of Trustees voted unanimously Monday to appoint Michael Jimenez as Mountain View High’s new principal.
“I appreciate the opportunity to be able to work with the staff, the students, the parents and the community at Mountain View High School,” Jimenez said at the board meeting.
He currently serves as the assistant superintendent overseeing high schools in the Mount Diablo Unified School District. That’s the same district Superintendent Nellie Meyer came from. He has 30 years of experience in education, including over 20 as an administrator.
He will replace Dave Grissom, who is taking a job as commissioner of the California Interscholastic Federation’s Central Coast Section.
