Tam High Principal Resigns Earlier Than Expected

Tam High Principal Tom Drescher announced his resignation on Monday, saying a "personal circumstance" will cause him to leave the district before his planned exodus in June. San Marin High School High principal Bob Vieth will take over through

Tam High Principal Tom Drescher made his exodus earlier than expected, resigning this week for a district position rather than waiting until June as he had annouced in December. He sent an email out at 4 p.m. Monday saying that was his last day on the job.

“A recent change in personal circumstance will likely result in me resigning and leaving Tam prior to June for a position in another district,” Drescher wrote. “I asked Laurie Kimbrel for a transfer to the district office for my remaining time in TUHSD in order to allow a smooth transition in leadership.”

Superintendent Laurie Kimbrel announced in an email Tuesday afternoon to Tam staff members that Bob Vieth, principal of San Marin High School in Novato, will step in as the interim principal until the end of the school year.

“Dr. Vieth comes to us with a wealth of teaching and leadership experience,” Kimbrel said. “He has served for 19 years as a public school principal with 11 of those years at the high school level, most recently at San Marin High School in Novato."

Vieth starts on Monday, Feb. 4 and a district search is underway for a permanent replacement.

    I wish the district had been faster with the parent communication.
