Estacada High School Principal Hired




The Estacada School District is pleased to announce that after an extensive recruiting and interview process, Amy Hudson has been selected to serve as principal at Estacada High School. 


Estacada School District Superintendent Ryan Carpenter noted that “Amy Hudson is a highly qualified candidate with a unique skill set that we are excited to bring to Estacada High School. She is student-focused, an excellent team player, and will continue to foster growth and improvement at Estacada High School.”


Hudson was selected from over a dozen qualified candidates through an extensive and rigorous interview process that integrated staff, parent, and student input. Hudson has served as principal at Clackamas River Elementary for four years, and has previous experience working with students at the secondary level in the Gresham-Barlow school district. During her time in the Estacada School District, Amy Hudson has led the way on many improvement projects that have impacted all schools. Last year, Hudson led the development of the district’s Virtual School Days initiative, a plan that has allowed the Estacada School District to lead the nation in the support and education it is able to provide students during the COVID-19 crisis. 


Hudson will transition to Estacada High School in July of 2020, and the Estacada School District will begin recruiting for an elementary principal to fill her position at Clackamas River within the coming week. Updates will be made available throughout this process. 


Please join us in welcoming Amy Hudson to Estacada High School. We are confident that she will be a leader in ensuring a bright future at EHS.
