Important Announcement from Principal Billings
June 26, 2015
Dear Wilcox Staff, Parents, and Community Members,
I am excited to announce that I will be pursuing a new path on my journey in Santa Clara Unified School District; however, I am saddened that this means Wilcox will no longer be my home. Last night, the Board of Education approved me for the position of Director I, Media & Learning Resources to replace Kathie Kanavel. A lot of thought went into this decision as this was incredibly difficult for me. In the five years that I have been at Wilcox we have accomplished many things together. Some of these accomplishments include: successfully creating and implementing our Single Plan for Student Achievement for five years in a row, receiving one of the highest ratings possible for the WASC visit, opening and updating the school’s computer labs to a total of five, adding three class sets of Google Chromebooks, ensuring that all math teachers have a class set of graphing calculators, and creating a system of staff development that works for our learning needs. These successes have come as a result of the committed team that is unique to Wilcox High School.
Wilcox will always be a valued part of my professional journey and I am proud to have led this amazing group of students, staff, and parents. In my new position I am committed to building on these successes and using my experience to continue this work. I will always be a part of the Wilcox community and will continue to support Wilcox through this transition. I am confident that the District will find a candidate that will uphold Wilcox High School’s values, traditions, and vision. Go Chargers!
