New Foothill principal says he's here to stay

Original post made on Sep 20, 2013

The new principal at Foothill High, Jason Krolikowski, describes himself as a "veteran new guy," with three years each at two assistant principal posts in other Bay Area high schools, but said he's come to Foothill to stay.

I've met Jason and I like what I see so far. The comments above lead me to believe that he understands that not every student is headed to college. I hope we start to see more of the shop classes return to our schools, when and if we can find the money to do so. Possibly looking to the private sector for sponsorships to fund a program maybe a way of doing this. Back to Jason. He seems to be trying hard to connect with his students, teachers and parents. Example, he shows up on a Saturday in Novato to support his Foothill Football teams. Keep up the good work Jason.

I agree with C-Student. History has shown that the infamous "here to stay" remark tends to presage a brief sojourn.

It was interesting to read this report. that did impress me in the new principal's remarks was his readiness to tackle the criticism of his academic credentials head on and openly admit that he was a mediocre student.

However, what people say is of little importance compared with what they actually do.

Since the district officials apparently found the decision on a new principal for Foothill so much easier than that for Amador, one can only hope that Mr. Krolikowski has some star quality that will rapidly reveal itself in his actions.

Somehow two words of my message were deleted. The third sentence should start as follows:

"One thing that did impress me....."
