Alta Loma Superintendent to Retire

Alta Loma School District Superintendent James Moore will step down on June 30 and retire from the public education sector, the Inland Valley Daily Bulletin reports. Moore has overseen the K-8 district’s 10 schools in San Bernardino County for the past six years.

Moore, 60, led the district through some major changes, the foremost being the voter-approved adoption of Measure H in 2016, a school modernization bond that won by only six votes. Modernization projects include a new classroom building at Deer Canyon Elementary School completed in January and ongoing work at Alta Loma and Vineyard junior high schools.

Moore also worked on helping students embrace technology with the purchase of 6,000 new Chromebook computers.

“We will greatly miss his leadership,” said Rebecca Davies, school board president, during an interview on Monday, March 9.

The district has retained Santa Barbara-based Leadership Associates to assist with recruitment. Finalists will be interviewed next month and the district’s choice will be named May 6.
