Rehkopf's appointment was announced following a special-closed session meeting at the San Ramon Valley Unified School District Board of Education last Thursday, along with several other new appointments, including Demetrius Ball as principal at California High School in San Ramon.

"We are excited to bring Ms. Rehkopf to Greenbrook, and know you join us in welcoming her as the new Principal," Superintendent John Malloy said in an email to the Greenbrook community. "She looks forward to collaborating and working together to continue to achieve great things for the entire community."

Although the appointment will see Rehkopf leaving the Pleasanton Unified School District for SRVUSD, she began her career in the latter district, as a fifth-grade teacher at Golden View Elementary School in San Ramon. Before heading to PUSD's Walnut Grove Elementary School as vice principal, she served as a teacher on special assignment in administration at both Golden View Elementary and Pine Valley Middle schools.

"She is an accomplished leader and student-focused educator with a vast range of experience," Malloy said.

How many Principals ave quit SRVUSD this year? Seems to be disproportionate compared to other years. Seems to be that middle management is not happy with the policy of the upper management.

Not only principals, but teachers too. Malloys approach of driving his LGBQT agenda down the throats of every single employee and student and dismissing academics to the back burner is the exact reason why this is happening.
