Dear Students, Parents, Staff and Community Members of Alpine Union,
I would like to take this opportunity to say I am honored and humbled to be serving as the Superintendent of Schools for the Alpine Union School District.
I am deeply appreciative of the trust the Alpine Board of Trustees has placed in me. I look forward to working in partnership with the Board, our dedicated staff, parents, employee associations, community members, and partners to ensure the success of Alpine Union.
Over the course of my career, I have had the opportunity to work at the classroom, school, district, university and national level. These experiences have prepared me to lead Alpine Union into the future, and have taught me the power of working collaboratively to build a first rate educational system.
One of my core beliefs is that we must create unique and personalized opportunities for our students to reach their potential, and be successful, in the globally competitive world they will inherit. Together, I know we can ensure the success of every staff and student, and make Alpine Union a Destination District that is known for its top notch staff, first rate facilities, and innovative and personalized learning experiences provided to both students and staff.
In a very short time my family and I have come to know that Alpine is a special place that is proud of its rich history, eager to build upon its traditions, and where community participation is a key ingredient in what makes Alpine so unique. I very much look forward to getting to know each of you, and to learn more about your hopes and dreams for the future of Alpine Union. I plan to reach out once we are closer to the beginning of the new school year. Until then I can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Rich Newman, Ed.D.
