Our campus administrators ensure everything runs smoothly at Mountain View. Our principal, Dr. Randy Podhaski, is supported by a great team! Grace Ashworth, Jill Owen, and Amanda Slay are our assistant principals. June Newberry supports teachers with assessment and instruction as our Campus Instructional Specialist. Robin Cavenaugh supports teachers with technology integration as our Campus Technology Support Specialist.

We have positive support from our families and community. Mountain View has one of the most active PTA organizations and parent/community involvement programs in the district. Our school also is working to expand our volunteer program this school year. With all this support, Mountain View can't help but be the best!
