Message from Superintendent Kuhlman

Dear Hart District Community,

I’m writing to share the news that I have made the difficult decision to leave the Hart District at the conclusion of this school year.  After 27 incredibly fulfilling years, I've decided to embark on a new chapter in my career in Northern California where I've been selected to become the Superintendent of the El Dorado Union High School District. Almost three decades ago, I began my teaching career in the Sacramento area and this move will afford the opportunity to renew old friendships. Leading the El Dorado Union High School District, a community whose focus on education aligns with the Hart District’s values, is an opportunity I’m excited to explore.

Stepping away is nevertheless a bittersweet decision.  My wife Cindi and I have built a beautiful life here in the Santa Clarita Valley and we've made countless memories, witnessed incredible accomplishments, and fostered cherished friendships with the good people of this Valley. You are the reason that we find it hard to think about leaving.

I will be forever grateful to the Governing Board for having entrusted me with the special responsibility of serving as the Superintendent of the William Hart Union High School District. I am thankful for their continued support and trust through this transition and I’m confident that they will make the right decision about this new chapter in the leadership of the Hart District.  The Governing Board will be discussing next steps at future Governing Board meetings. 

I'll be working diligently until my last day on June 30th to ensure a smooth transition.  Thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for the trust, support, and camaraderie you've shown me throughout the years. It's been an honor leading this exceptional district. I have no doubt the future of Hart remains bright, and whoever takes the helm next will be fortunate to work with such a remarkable group of individuals.
 With sincere gratitude,
 Mike Kuhlman
