Scott Bergerhouse named principal of Dozier-Libbey Dependent Charter School
At its regularly scheduled Board of Education Meeting held on April 9, 2014, the Antioch Unified School District appointed Scott Bergerhouse principal of the new Dozier-Libbey Medical High School Dependent Charter School (DLMHS-DCS) scheduled to open in August of 2014.*
In his new role, Mr. Bergerhouse will form a newly established Community Advisory Committee to determine what supports and enhancements will best serve the needs of the students scheduled to attend DLMHS-DCS in the fall. He will also be meeting with student and parent focus groups to begin planning for the opening of the school.
Mr. Bergerhouse is a well-known and well-respected administrator who began his career in the Antioch Unified School District as an English teacher in 1984 at what was then Park Junior High School. Mr. Bergerhouse has since been an administrator at Antioch High School, Antioch Junior High School, Park Middle School, Deer Valley High School and, most recently, Carmen Dragon Elementary. In 2010, Mr. Bergerhouse was named High School Principal of the year by the Association of California School Administrators. For the past seven years, Mr. Bergerhouse has also been selected by administrators in the District to serve as president of Antioch’s Management Association (AMA). Mr. Bergerhouse has a gift for bringing people together around a shared vision and motivating and inspiring staff and students to perform at the highest levels. He is also recognized in the community as an administrator who values the ideas and input of the people and families he serves.
Mr. Bergerhouse is active in the community and serves as president of the Delta Advocacy Foundation alongside distinguished community members such as Nancy Libbey, Nancy Green and Jack Roddy. Delta Advocacy is a charitable foundation that seeks to provide resources and help to families in Antioch and surrounding areas.
Mr. Bergerhouse will be on the Dozier-Libbey Medical High School campus to meet and greet students, staff and parents beginning Thursday, April 10th.
*DLMHS-DCS was approved by the Board of Education on March 19, 2014 to support and enhance the programs currently offered at DLMHS. The status of DLMHS in the 2014-15 school year is currently uncertain due to a petition to convert DLMHS to an independent charter school operated outside of the Antioch Unified School District. The petition is currently before the Contra Costa County Board of Education.
