New Principal Search

April 10, 2017

Dear Mountain View Community,

As you have learned by now, Lynn Saltzgaver has accepted the position at the district as our new Director for Advanced Academic Services, which she will begin in August of 2017.  Although we are thrilled that she will be assuming this new role, we are very sad to see her leave the Mountain View principalship.

In meeting with staff last week, we have determined that we will post for this position, and conduct a comprehensive principal hiring process.  This process includes interviews at the district and school level, and offers opportunities for the staff and community to give feedback on a group of finalists.  This process will likely take place within the next three to four weeks.  It would be our hope that we would be able to find and identify a new leader for Mountain View by the middle of May.

Please click here to take a survey of traits and characteristics that you all find to be critical in the next new principal that we hire here at Mountain View.  We will use those identified attributes during our screening and interviewing process.

As always, we appreciate your patience and support as we move through this process.  We will be in touch with you as to our next steps, and most importantly, when we have identified our final candidates where you will have the opportunity to come and meet with them.  Shelley Stetler , Mountain View’s Assistant Principal will serve as the main point of contact for the school, so you can feel free to reach out to her, or if you’d like to contact me directly, you can reach me at

I look forward to engaging in this process with you, and have every confidence that we will be able to find a dynamic school leader that can ensure Mountain View continues its current tradition of excellence and achievement.

Warm Regards,

Kim Walsh
Executive Director of Schools
