Welcome New Principal Patterson

posted Aug 14, 2015, 2:51 PM by Sheilah Sedore
Welcome to the 2015-2016 school year! As you know, Dr. Richison has taken a position with the San Diego County Office of Education.  We conducted a vigorous recruitment for her replacement, and interviews were held this week. There were many exceptional candidates, and a very representative panel from ECVHS helped conduct the interviews.

Kim Patterson has been chosen as the new principal of ECVHS. Ms. Patterson served Portland Public Schools from 2000-2013 as a Language Arts Teacher, Vice Principal, and Principal.  She comes highly regarded by her supervisors and peers, and currently serves as the Director of College and Career Readiness for the State of Oregon. She will begin her principalship at ECVHS on August 26th.

I am confident  that Ms. Patterson will provide the leadership and support that the faculty and staff at El Cajon Valley High School deserve, and that she will work very closely with all of you to continue the amazing growth and progress you have all been so proud of these past years. She is a true believer in the power of good teaching and impressed me with her passion for the work that teachers do - she is a true instructional leader.   

Please join me in welcoming Kim Patterson, Principal, El Cajon Valley High School!
