The Beverly Hills Unified School District (BHUSD) Board of Education convened for its first meeting of 2023 on Jan. 17. The board’s diverse agenda included updates from Superintendent Dr. Michael Bregy regarding new kosher meal options available for students in the district, an increasing demand for electric vehicle chargers on campus, and the nationwide search for a new Beverly Hills High School (BHHS) principal. 

After former BHHS principal Mark Mead was promoted to director of student safety last summer, Bregy appointed Drew Stewart and Kim Decatrel as interim co-principals for the 2022-2023 school year, giving the administration time to find a replacement. However, as the search for a new principal continues, Stewart and Decatrel will finish the school year out. “It is one of the most important decisions that I will make,” Bregy said regarding who he will recommend for the position to the board. “It’s a very comprehensive process that will involve a lot of people, including our students, because it’s really important that I get their feedback about their next principal as well.” Bregy also emailed a survey out to the community this week, asking for input regarding the role. 

“We’ve really marketed the position,” Dr. Bregy said. “I look forward to updating the board and our community where we are in this process, but I’m very transparent about what this process looks like…There’s no front runner, these are authentic interviews. I’m not even in the first round because I don’t want there to be any perception that the superintendent is picking somebody that he knows.”

Candidates must apply by 4 p.m. on Jan. 27, 2023, at bhusd.org/apply/. 

In the coming days, Bregy will also announce updates on the Konheim building, anti-bullying measures, elevators at the high school and the construction committee. The next board of education meeting will be held on Jan. 31 at 5 p.m.
