Replace Mat Miles as Cove High School Principal for Upcoming 2018/19 School Year

This petition had 118 supporters

After around 6 years of working as the Cove High School Principal, it is time for Mat Miles to retire. His lack of energy and ability to lead is now holding back many important opportunities for many students. The bright, hopeful students of Cove High School deserve to have a quality principal. Mat Miles is currently up to renew his contract, naming him principal for the next three years. We cannot let this happen. Many minor complaints have been made over the years, but the people who could make change happen weren't aware. Below, I will list a few of Mat Miles' incidents that, without quick-thinking, intelligent students and staff members could've been at the expense of our students, parents, and Cove High School itself.

  • In the 2016-2017 school year, Mat Miles failed to submit any of the senior transcripts to the Oregon Promise in order for them to attend colleges. A determined senior had to set up a conference call with them herself to make it happen.
  • Again in the 2016-17 school year, due to Mat Miles' procrastination in scheduling, several seniors spent their last day of school retaking state tests. 
  • Finally, once again in the 2016-17 school year, Mat Miles' did not know which students would be valedictorian and salutatorian until just 3 days prior to the ceremony.
  • On separate occasions, students have described having racist interactions with Mat Miles.

These are only a few of the common incidents that Mat Miles' is a part of every single day. So I ask for all students, parents, staff members, and community members to sign this petition and share any of your issues you've had to have Mat Miles' removed from the principal position at Cove High School.
