Administrative Team


Our Principal

Mrs. Alex Lain

A little about myself. I am taking on the role as the new principal at CVHS.  I have been with the district since 2003.  At Shasta Lake School, I taught for several years and was the assistant principal for six years.  This last year, I was the assistant principal at CVHS,  and I am looking forward to leading the school as its new principal. As a student myself,  I attended Project City (GOES), Deer Creek (SLS), CVI (City Hall), and CVHS.  I continued my education at our local community college, Shasta College, and then went to CSU, Chico earning my Bachelor of Arts degree in English. After teaching for over a decade, I made my way back to college earning my Master of Science in Applied School Leadership at National University. I want to continue the belief that we are here to serve the community and its children to better their lives academically and socially.  

Our Assistant Principal
