School district names new superintendent
Micheline Miglis has accepted a contract to serve as Superintendent of Plumas Unified School District.
Miglis was the assistant superintendent of educational services at Silver Valley Unified School District (SVUSD) since July 2010.
According to PUSD governing board president Christopher Russell, Miglis has been successful in the K-12 education system, at the classified and certificated management level.
“Micheline has a collaborative, natural leadership style, and has been recognized for intentional use of data in making informed decisions district wide,” Russell said in a Sept. 21 message to school district staff members.
Russell said Miglis would start work Oct. 11, pending governing board approval at the Oct. 10 meeting in Portola.
The SVUSD, which covers 3,200 square miles, is located in the Mojave Desert in Southern California.
The district serves 2,593 students, including one regional high school with 533 students.
About 65 percent of the students’ families are military or military-related. Many of the other families work in the fields of agriculture, railroading, trucking and local businesses.
