The Pleasanton Unified School District announced Lydiksen Elementary School's new principal Tuesday as Jake Berg.

He will be succeeding Mindy Bolar, who was appointed as the district's new director of curriculum in May.

Berg is currently the vice principal for Lydiksen, Hearst and Vintage Hills elementary schools. He has also been the principal of Pleasanton's elementary summer school program this summer.

Prior to his administrative positions, Berg taught the fourth grade at Lydiksen for nine years.

He has a strong background in technology after working in the IT/Computer Support industry for eight years prior to beginning his career in education.

Berg received his bachelor's degree in journalism/communication from the University of Oregon and his master's degree in education from National University.
