Assistant principals, dean named at Palo Alto schools

New superintendent fills vacancies at Gunn, JLS and Terman

Palo Alto School Superintendent Glenn "Max" McGee has named new assistant principals for Terman and JLS middle schools as well as a new dean for Gunn High School.

Tonya Bailey, an assistant principal from the K-8 Evergreen School District in San Jose, replaces Bhavna Narula at Terman. Narula left to take a position with the Milpitas Unified School District.

Hillary Miller, who came to the Palo Alto district in 2011 as an English language specialist and coordinator, becomes assistant principal at JLS, replacing Barbara Harris, who in June was named Palo Alto's director of elementary education. Harris replaced Kathleen Meagher, who moved to the Washington, D.C. area.

At Gunn, special education teacher Tara Keith was named dean, replacing James Lubbe, who in June was named assistant principal at the school.

"I am delighted to be adding these student-centered leaders to our PAUSD team," McGee said in a statement. "Their experiences in leading teacher development, differentiated learning and focusing on student support will make their strong site teams even more effective in serving students and families."
