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.
