Amador Valley parents invited to forum tonight on principal search


A public forum will be held for Pleasanton Unified parents tonight to share what qualities they'd like considered when the district chooses Amador Valley High's next principal.

The school aims get a new principal this summer in time for the 2016-17 school year after current principal Tom Drescher said he'd be leaving his job in June. He declined to state why he was resigning.

"I have a unique opportunity next year and I'm excited to begin a new chapter in my life," he said after his announcement in January. "I shared the decision now to ensure that PUSD has adequate time to find a replacement. Please know it was a difficult decision to leave because I truly love Amador."

The meeting, advertised specifically to parents and guardians, will be from 6-7 p.m. today at Amador Valley's multipurpose room, 1155 Santa Rita Road.

Amador Valley students will get an opportunity to share their input at lunchtime today, the district stated.
