New Mammoth School Superintendent Lois Klein

In February, after several closed sessions, Mammoth School Superintendent Rich Boccia resigned with no explanation. Now, after a lengthy search, the Mammoth School Board has chosen a new school leader.

After Boccia’s departure, the Board had appointed educator Lou Stewart as Interim Superintendent. The Mono County Office of Education, along with Mammoth School District, launched an extensive search. Officials held a series of community input forums to learn what kind of superintendent the public wanted.

They received a number of applications and conducted interviews. Last week, board members spent time with finalists and then narrowed their search down to a site visit. They met Monday evening and later announced that they had voted to hire Lois Klein of Bonita Unified School District in San Dimas.

A press release says that Ms. Klein is an experienced educator, who has held positions of Teacher, Assistant Principal, Principal, District Director and most, recently, Assistant Superintendent, a position she has held for the last six years.

Officials also said that Ms. Klein is familiar with the Eastern Sierra and that she and her family have made June Lake their “home away from home” for many years. She, and her husband, Christopher, are looking forward to calling the Eastern Sierra their permanent home. Ms. Klein will begin her duties as MUSD Superintendent on July 1, 2013.”

      Me too! The backbone of Mammoth tourism is immigrant labor; cleaning rooms, washing dishes, cooking food and serving visitors in countless ways. Some of these folks have kids. Many attend Mammoth schools. A bi-lingual Sup. would be a big plus. Mammoth has changed through the past several years (Bishop too!). Perhaps you haven’t noticed.

        That’s all fine if this immigrant labor came here legally. If they didn’t then they have committed a crime and those that employee them are committing a crime too.

        You just like them because they are cheap labor.. basically taking advantage of their illegal status.

        Shame on all of you

    You are correct, Changin.
    And just like during the Great Depression, a little known fact is, millionaires were made by the sackful on the backs, sweat, and hard work of the little guy. Throw in the other non-immigrants who are transitory, work for a season or two for peanuts then move on.
