- Michael McDonald, currently assistant principal at Summit High School, will officially become principal July 1.
Summit's current principal, Alice De Wittie, announced in October that she would be leaving the district at the end of the current school year. According to media reports, at least one parent complained to the district after De Wittie wrote an email including references to structuring our public education system around God's "basic design for how people and systems work in relationship," among other references to a religious mission within the public education system. Summit has had three principals since 2001, with McDonald being the fourth.
McDonald has been involved in education in Oregon for more than 25 years, and has served as assistant principal at Summit since 2004.
