Dear Jackson Families,

As you know, next week will be David Lee’s last as principal of Jackson Elementary School; he will soon be moving to Guam to assume his new role as a principal in the Department of Defense Dependent School System.

Due to the timing of his transition, the decision has been made to fill the principal position on an interim basis, with the selection process for a permanent replacement taking place in the spring.  Retired Hillsboro School District administrators Kathi Robinson and Lauri Lewis are going to share the position, with Farmington View principal Roger Will providing support for the implementation of Next Generation Science Standards and Project Lead the Way, as well as the  teacher evaluation process.

Dr. Robinson was an administrator in Hillsboro for more than fourteen years.  She first served as an assistant principal at Century High School, and then as principal of Evergreen Middle School, before joining the Office for School Performances as a director.  In the 2012-13 school year she oversaw federal programs, Right Brain implementation and TAG services, and last year she served as the District’s TAG TOSA before retiring in June. 

Ms. Lewis was on the teaching team that opened Jackson Elementary School in 1990.  After seven years there, she transitioned to Evergreen Middle School where she was successively a 7th grade teacher, assistant principal, and principal.  In 2004, she became principal of Patterson Elementary School, and then joined the Human Resources team as a director in 2010.  She also just retired in June of this year.

Ms. Lewis is currently filling a temporary vacancy at South Meadows through mid-November, so Dr. Robinson will be on site at Jackson full-time beginning this Thursday, September 11.  From mid-November through the remainder of the year, Dr. Robinson and Ms. Lewis will work out a schedule to share their time on campus.  They will both be present at Jackson’s Back-to-School Night on Thursday, September 25, however, so please plan to attend and introduce yourselves.

The interim leadership team has a depth of knowledge and experience that will serve the Jackson community very well throughout the year. 

Please join me in welcoming them to Jackson!

Thank you,

Dayle Spitzer
Executive Director of Elementary Schools
