Gresham-Barlow School District selects principal for
Gresham High School


 
The Gresham-Barlow School District announced today that Michael Schaefer has been selected to be the new principal of Gresham High School (GHS). Schaefer has several years of administrative experience, most recently serving four years as assistant principal of Sam Barlow High School (SBHS). Prior to that he served as the assistant principal for Hidden Valley High School in Grants Pass, Oregon.
 
“Through his work at Sam Barlow High School, Michael Schaefer has demonstrated his ability to lead in a meaningful way,” said Superintendent Jim Schlachter. “His commitment to student success and to working with staff to increase opportunities for all students aligns with the great work already taking place at Gresham High School.”
 
During Schaefer’s tenure at Sam Barlow High School, he led the effort to remove barriers and increase access to Advanced Placement and Honors courses for low income students and students of color. 
 
Schaefer was selected for the Gresham High School principalship after an extensive search process which included input from school staff and parents.
 
“I am honored, proud, and humbled to be afforded the opportunity to continue leading in the Gresham-Barlow School District as the principal of Gresham High School,” said Schaefer. “Gresham High School has a long history as an anchor of the Gresham community. I look forward to working with its outstanding staff as we prepare all students for a successful future.”
 
Schaefer will replace John Koch who will become the school district’s executive director of student support services July 1.
