As principal of Hueneme High School, Thomas McCoy already helps local students achieve success at the secondary school level.As a part-time teacher at California State University, Channel Islands, he does the same for those in post-secondary education.
But now that the 34-year-old Ventura resident has been chosen to serve on the Intersegmental Coordinating Committee, he can do both on a larger scale.

"I'll be able to provide more opportunities for high school students," said McCoy, who will join committee members for discussions about high school curriculum, graduation requirements, college application and transfer requirements and easing the transition from high school to college, among other issues."And not just at my school, but across the county or the state."
McCoy will be the K-12 representative on the prestigious committee, which already names bigwigs from University of California, California State University, California Community Colleges and statewide private schools as members.

"There were other people nominated," O'Connell said, adding that McCoy "just jumped out at me."

The appointment makes sense to McCoy, who was born and bred to be in education.After growing up with a grandmother and father who both taught, McCoy earned his bachelor of arts degree at the University of California, Los Angeles, and his master of education degree at University of San Diego.
He started teaching physical education and social science in San Diego, before becoming assistant principal at Hueneme High School.In 2001, he was named principal of the school, all the while earning his doctor of education degree at the University of California, Los Angeles.
Now, he's getting ready for the next step, a meeting on Dec. 3.
"I've just been told to come up and meet everyone and be prepared to discuss what I know, which is the high school perspective," he said.

Tom McCoy, principal of Hueneme High, said it's hard to motivate kids to take the test seriously because it's not needed to pass high school or enter college, nor is it factored into grades.
Before hitting hard budget times, McCoy said, even the state awarded scholarships for scores, $150,000 a year on his campus alone.With those incentives gone, he said, schools are continuing the tradition.
"As long as the STAR continues to be its own entity," he said, "we're going to think of incentives."
He wanted to take the test
The day before testing began at Foothill Technology High, a freshman was riding his bike when he was hit by a car.
The teen fell onto the hood, hurt his knee, cracked his bike helmet.His body was covered with cuts and scrapes.
Yet the next day, the teen came to school using a cane.He wanted to take the test.
He wanted to test, Principal Joe Bova said, to represent his school.He wanted to help his class earn incentives: a schoolwide trip to Magic Mountain.
