Mountain View-Los Altos High School District superintendent to retire

By the Daily Post staff

Mountain View-Los Altos school district Superintendent Jeff Harding will retire June 30 after four years in the district, school officials said yesterday. Harding has been an educator for 38 years and a superintendent for 11.

“I’ll retire from MVLA knowing that our district fundamentals are solid,” Harding said in a statement. “Academic performance continues to improve. The passage of Measure E will bring new buildings to accommodate our growing enrollment.”

In his four years with the district, Harding expanded the Advancement Via Individual Determination program, which helps underserved students develop college-level skills.

Harding also supported well-being programs for students and employees and oversaw the hiring of a number of administrators.

He kept the district’s budget in the black and initiated Measure E, the $295 million construction school bond that passed with 68% of the vote in June.
