Why no mention of Donlon Elementary's Principal stepping down? Not to mention this is Donlon's 4th Principal that has only lasted a year. Might be worth a discussion at tonight's school board meeting. This has direct impact to the staff, kids, parents, and overall community.

What happened to the Amador principal- why weren't they announced? PMS and Foothill were.

Donlon's Principal is stepping down because she is moving to SoCal but she took the job there because she got moved out of Amador because the VP from Foothill got moved to AV because .... The DO really know whats they are doing hunh? Never happy at Donlon. And Amador's principal wasn't announced because they don't know what they are doing again. Had a really two good candidates but couldn't commit. Maybe parents should step up and start complaining a little??

This is another example of district office ignoring the needs of Amador Valley High School. They had two great candidates make it to the final interview and now we have to start the process all over again. It is disrespectful of the interview panels. All they want is a "YES" man to Odie and Parvin.

Ignored, it sounds as if you have sour grapes.

There have been some absolutely awful VPs at Amador in the past.

Hopefully the District will come up with an excellent candidate that has a proven track record of being respectful of students, respectful of parents, and who can impact the lives of students in a positive manner.

If they pick a candidate who is a train wreck, after all, Ahmadi and Douglas could lose their jobs over it.
