James Moore, who has served as Superintendent of the Alta Loma School District since 2014, announced he will retire at the end of current school year. With nearly 40 years of service in public education, Moore made an immediate impact as Superintendent and has led the District through a tremendous period of growth. The ALSD Board of Trustees has launched a search and hopes to name a new Superintendent by the end of the academic year.
