Four Finalists for Principal to Talk

The four finalists for the position of Chatsworth High School’s new principal will meet with parents and community members at a public meeting Thursday.

Each finalist will be giving a short presentation followed by a question-and-answer session, said Diana Dixon-Davis, parent representative of the School Based Management Council at Chatsworth High School.

“We had 19 people apply, we reviewed their resumes and looked at their training and experience to find the person with the best possible fit,” said Dixon-Davis, a representative of the six-member selection committee.

“We feel that the four candidates that we have chosen best match the needs of our school.”


The candidates are Dana Wyatt, assistant principal at Sylmar High School; John McLaughlin, assistant principal at Mount Gleason Middle School in Sun Valley; James Dwin, assistant principal at Granada Hills High School, and Gregory Lee, assistant principal at Chatsworth High School.

At the end of the meeting, those attending will be asked to write comments on a sheet of paper concerning the candidates, Dixon-Davis said.

Upon evaluating the public comments, the committee will recommend its candidate to Larry Moore, the Chatsworth-Granada Hills cluster leader, who will pass on the candidate’s name to Ruben Zacarias, superintendent of schools of the Los Angeles Unified School District, she said.

The meeting will begin at 6 p.m. in the library at Chatsworth High School, 10027 Lurline Ave. Parking is free.
