“I am excited for the new opportunity to work with the middle and high school principals throughout our District and share the lessons I have learned and insights I have gained working at Capo Valley with them,” Hill said.


The Assistant Superintendent, Curriculum and Instruction grades 6-12, K-8, Alternative Education, oversees all secondary education programs in the District. Major initiatives include fully implementing the professional learning community model District-wide, as well as reviewing District assessment processes to ensure schools have the data they need to be informed about the effectiveness of their instructional practices.

“I will miss my Capistrano Valley High family. One of my first tasks in my new position will be to find and support an exceptional leader ready to step into the principalship of one of the best high schools in the District. I will take that task very seriously and look forward to continued visits to Capo as I work to support this transition. I am going forward into this role confident they have the tools they need to continue the great work they are doing,” Hill said.


The District will actively engage with the Capistrano Valley High School community to find their next school leader.
