Citing unspecified personal and professional reasons, Milpitas High School Principal Phil Morales today announced he is resigning his post.
Morales offered his resignation last week and it was accepted by Milpitas Unified School District on Tuesday. His announcement to the school community today was via email.
“Although it’s hard to say goodbye to many of you, the hardest part of leaving is saying goodbye to the students. I have grown attached to them over the year. Milpitas students are amazing young people, and I will miss them,” Morales said in his email.
He will remain principal until the end of the school year in June.
Morales started as principal on July 1. The new principal who takes over the next school year will be the third one at the 3,200-student campus in the past four years.
Superintendent Cheryl Jordan said today the district has started to post the position on different job sites this week.
“The board and I are committed to making sure we find a principal who meets the needs of all of our staff and students,” Jordan said.
She added that she wants to reassure the community that getting the right principal is the district’s top priority.
“As far as Milpitas High School, we want it to be a high-functioning place and want everyone to feel good about working and learning there,” Jordan said.
