The Novato Unified School District Board of Trustees unanimously voted to approve the appointment of Matt Baldwin as the new principal at Novato High School at its April 15, 2014 meeting.
Greeted by a welcoming crowd that included assistant principals, parents, teachers and students from Novato High School, Mr. Baldwin commented how humbled and excited he is to be joining the NUSD. Coming from the Acalanes School District in Walnut Creek where he served most recently as Assistant Principal at Las Lomas High School, he is known to be a strong instructional leader as the administrator on the district Common Core transition team, the Academic Literacy coordinator and in the development of productive student-focused environments to maximize learning.
“We welcome Matt to NUSD and look forward to working with him at Novato High. His experience with Common Core and academic literacy complements our efforts and focus on student achievement,” commented Dr. Shalee Cunningham, NUSD Superintendent.
Mr. Baldwin received his Bachelor of Arts in History from Sonoma State University and a Masters of Arts from Cal State Northridge in Educational Leadership. Matt Baldwin replaces Rey Mayoral who is retiring this year after serving as the principal at Novato High School for ten years.
