Newly named as principal of Buckingham Charter Magnet High, Mike Boles counted among his immediate goals the fine-tuning of the school’s Local Control Accountability Plan and boosting student access to the latest classroom technology.
“We’re just going to try to improve,” student success at the Bella Vista Road campus, he said Friday. “We want to continue to be one of the best charter schools in the area.”
After briefly serving as the school’s interim principal, Boles, 61, replaces Jeff Erickson, who left to teach at Heritage Peak, an independent charter school in downtown Vacaville.
As principal, Boles, a tall, congenial man will earn an annual salary of $118,000, oversee 465 students and supervise some 30 employees, including faculty, school-support workers and office staff.
