Earlier this year, current CES Principal Stephanie Beach was appointed by the board to begin the 2018-2019 school year as principal of Live Oak Elementary School. With Mrs. Beach taking her role as principal at Live Oak, it opened the position at CES.
In 2014, she was chosen to work at the District Office as a teacher on special assignment, overseeing the implementation of Common Core State Standards, revision of report cards and local district benchmarks, as well as being an instructional coach for new teachers.
Four years later, West was named Administrator on Special Assignment, where she currently oversees Title I, the Independent Study programs, in addition to assisting the Assistant Superintendent of Educational Services. In this role, she has been instrumental in implementing the District’s newly adopted ELA/ELD series and the computer-based intervention program, i-Ready.
During her tenure as an Administrator on Special Assignment, she worked closely with school sites and administrators to develop the District-wide Local Accountability Plan.
“The extensive experience Mrs. West has accumulated throughout these 19 years has prepared her for the challenges of being the new Castaic Elementary School Principal,” added Doyle.
West holds a bachelor’s degree from California State University, Sacramento, her teaching credential from The Master’s College, and her master’s degree and Administrative Credential from the University of La Verne.
Her new role as principal for Castaic Elementary School will begin on July 1, 2018.
