Mike Reid » Background


Welcome to Highlands Community Charter School and the California Innovation Academy. I'm Mike Reid and I serve as the Chief Operations Officer for Highlands. I've been an educator for over 38 years. In my career, I've served as a teacher, Vice-Principal, Principal and Schools Superintendent. I've had the opportunity to assist and be honored with recognition for 3 California Distinguished Schools. My journey in charter schools has spanned over 9 years with  overseeing a new charter school as well as serving as the Learning Analyst for another. 
I was blessed with the opportunity to serve as a consultant for the state of Hawaii for almost 3 years focusing on school academic improvement.
I now have the privilege of overseeing facilities and operations, compliance, human resources and business services, technology, work force development and assist with Academic programs. 
It is an honor to serve the staff and community at Highlands. I'm also privileged to have Ms. Byanca Alcazar as my Executive Assistant. She is the right arm of my daily work and we keep an open door policy. Please do not hesitate to let us know how we can serve you.
