18 Year Veteran of CVUSD is Thrilled to Lead at Banyan

On Tuesday, July 25th, the Conejo Valley Unified School District (CVUSD) Board of Education announced that Allison Kennedy was selected as the new principal of Banyan Elementary, starting with the 2017-2018 school year. Mrs. Kennedy has devoted the past 18 years of her career to Conejo Valley Unified School District (CVUSD), where she began as a teacher at Lang Ranch Elementary. Most recently, she has served as the Dean of Students at Colina Middle School since 2013.

“Allison’s unwavering commitment to the students of CVUSD, and her vast experience, which has spanned across both teaching and administrative roles, from elementary through high school, make her uniquely suited to lead at Banyan Elementary,” said Interim Superintendent, Dr. Mark McLaughlin.

Mrs. Kennedy holds a master’s degree in Elementary Education from Pepperdine University, and has been recognized with several Honorary Service Awards, most recently this past May at Colina Middle School. She was also awarded CVUSD’s Teacher of the Year (2008). She is committed to making sure every student feels that they matter, and supporting teachers to help provide the tools they need to help students become 21st century learners.

Mrs. Kennedy succeeds Banyan Elementary’s current principal, Laurie Davis, who will be serving as the principal at Weathersfield Elementary School.
