Associate Superintendent Ginni Davis is among three Palo Alto school district administrators who will retire this June, Superintendent Kevin Skelly announced Tuesday (March 15).
Also retiring will be William Garrison, director of assessment and evaluation, and David Johnson, director of human resources.
Davis, herself a graduate of one of the first classes at Gunn High School, came to work in the Palo Alto district in 2008 after serving as associate superintendent of the Davis Joint Unified School District. She was promoted to associate superintendent of educational services last summer.
She has overseen curriculum, student services and assessment for the district's 12,000 students, as well as professional development for the faculty and staff.
Garrison, with the district since 2003, tracks and reports on student testing data and works with teachers and principals on instructional approaches.
Johnson joined the Palo Alto district in 1973 as a special education teacher and has worked as a special education coordinator, a social studies teacher, an assistant principal and coordinator of human resources. His focus has been on health benefits and non-teaching staff members.
"I know I speak for the board and staff when I say how much we appreciate the service of these outstanding educators and other staff members who will be retiring this year," Skelly said.
