El Camino Fundamental High School
El Camino Fundamental High School welcomed Randy Holcomb as its new principal this school year. Holcomb is a Sacramento native, where he both attended and later served as principal at Foothills Ranch Middle School in the Twin Rivers Unified School District.
Holcomb has nearly 20 years of experience in education. He was inspired to take on the role after witnessing another principal, who he considered a great leader, improve attendance and grades in just a two-year span.
He hopes that one day he will create systems that can “run without me, because that’s a sign of a good system –– building capacity within the staff to keep the systems going and have the academics improved,” Holcomb said.
Holcomb’s focus at El Camino is to enforce more order on campus, continue to improve safety and inspire his students. On a typical school day, you can find Holcomb out in the hallways, as he makes it a point to be out and interacting with students during every passing period.
“My favorite thing about El Camino are the kids! From day one of school starting, the kids are just awesome,” Holcomb said.
When Holcomb is not at school, you can find him spending time with his family, including his wife, daughter and son, as well as coaching his son’s youth football team.
