    Dear Parents/Guardians,


    Greetings!  My name is Michael S. Elia and I am the new Superintendent for the Mountain View School District as of July, 1, 2020.  Over the last two school years, I have proudly served as Mountain View’s Director of Curriculum and High School Principal.  I have greatly enjoyed my time in these two important leadership positions and I am honored and am looking forward to taking over our great school district that is grounded in pride, passion and tradition.   I want to thank Mrs. Karen Voigt for all of her years of leadership in the Mountain View School District.  Her many years of commitment and dedication to the district are greatly appreciated!  


    Our mission as the Mountain View School District is to provide our students with a safe, welcoming environment for developing skills to become committed contributors to their community.  One of my main goals as superintendent is to work in a collaborative fashion with our building principals, teachers, paraprofessionals and support staff to inspire our students to find their passion, direction, motivation, and self esteem so they can persevere through any unforeseen challenge academically, personally, emotionally and socially that may arise.  Additionally, my personal passion as an educator is to work together with parents and family members to assist our students to positively tackle these challenges so they feel confident as they choose their future career paths.  


    Listening to our students, empowering our students, giving our students a voice, providing our students with a school climate and culture where they can strive and find success, along with providing our students and parents with the most up to date relevant information and resources is our recipe for success. 


    As we actively prepare for next school year, I will be sending out information soon with guidelines trying to make every effort to open up the school year on time in August.  I look forward to serving our great students and the entire Mountain View community!  


    If you have any questions at any time, please feel free to contact me in the business office at (570) 434-2180.
