Amador Valley High principal Tom Drescher will be leaving the school to pursue another career opportunity at the end of this school year.
Drescher made the announcement Monday in an email to faculty, saying he is sharing the news now "to ensure there is adequate time to find a new principal and allow a smooth transition in leadership."
"Amador Valley High School is unequivocally one of the finest schools in the country and it has been an honor and a privilege to work with a remarkable school community these past three years," Drescher said in his email. "Please know I will be fully engaged as the instructional leader of AVHS for the remainder of the school year."
Drescher will leave the school on June 30, 2016. He declined to elaborate on what "new career options" he is pursuing when contacted by the Pleasanton Weekly.
He has been the principal at Amador Valley since June 2013 and was previously a principal for five years at a Mill Valley high school.
Drescher is another in a line of principals who have announced their resignation due to promotions or other career opportunities in other districts. Most recently, Walnut Grove Elementary School principal Jan Steed left this month when she accepted a district-level position. Interim principal Chris Connor has since been chosen as the school's new leader.
