The Beverly Hills Unified School District Board of Education has approved the appointment of Dr. Kelly Skon as principal for Beverly Vista Middle School.
Skon has over 14 years of experience, starting as a middle school math teacher and later becoming a Common Core site lead at Laguna Beach Unified School District. She also had three years of district-level leadership at Saddleback Valley Unified School District, and most recently served as assistant principal at Fountain Valley High School.
“Dr. Skon’s passion for excellence in education, building community culture and school spirit were clear on paper, but after seeing her interact with students, observe classrooms and share insightful perspectives at BVMS last Friday, I can honestly say that we have found the right person to lead Beverly Vista Middle School,” BHUSD Superintendent Michael Bregy said. “It is important to note her impressive experience at both the school site and district level enabling her ability to balance the considerable responsibilities required of a middle school principal. I am extremely grateful to our dedicated panelists who participated in two full days of our comprehensive BVMS principal search. BHUSD is excited to welcome Dr. Skon to the BVMS community.”
Skon holds a doctorate in philosophy from Chapman University, a masters of arts degree in education from Vanguard University of Southern California, and a bachelor of science in mathematics degree from Chapman University. She has also earned professional credentials from Harvard Graduate School of Education, the Association of California School Administrators and Azusa Pacific University. Skon will begin in the new position with BHUSD in July.
“I am delighted and humbled by the opportunity to join the team at Beverly Vista Middle School and the community of Beverly Hills,” Skon said. “As the newest member of the BVMS family, I am eager to meet all the students, parents, guardians, teachers and staff to develop a lasting relationship. Together, we will continue the envisioned dream of creating a thriving middle school campus in Beverly Hills Unified School District.”
