Lisa Hechtman, who has served as Skyline High School’s principal since 2007, will be leaving her position at the end of the school year.

In an email to Skyline families April 14, Hechtman said she had accepted an offer to serve as the Issaquah School District’s executive director of personnel.

Hechtman was in her second stint at Skyline. She was one of its original staff members when the school opened in 1997, serving for seven years as a humanities teachers, dean of students and assistant principal.

In 2004, Hechtman left Skyline to become principal at Nathan Hale High School in Seattle. She also taught math and social studies in California in the early 1990s, earning her bachelor’s degree from the University of California at Davis. In 2003, she earned a principal’s credential from Seattle Pacific University.

Issaquah Superintendent Ron Thiele said Hechtman would be replacing outgoing cabinet member Kathy Miyauchi. He also said the search for a new Skyline principal would begin immediately, and the district was soliciting community input through April 21. Thiele plans to select a new principal by early June.
