• Welcome to Edna Maguire Elementary School

    The Mill Valley School District is pleased to announce our new Edna Maguire Principal. Daniel McCord, experienced principal, will join the team prior to the 2021-22 school year. The district conducted an extensive interview process, including stakeholder feedback, panel interviews, and on-site interviews, and we are confident we have identified the very best leader to serve in this role for Edna Maguire Elementary School.

    Mr. McCord studied International Relations and French at Brigham Young University, received his J.D. at University of the Pacific’s McGeorge School of Law, and holds an M.A. in Educational Leadership and Policy Studies. He most recently worked as the Principal at Crocker/Riverside Elementary School in the Sacramento City Unified School District from 2013 to 2021. Additionally, Mr. McCord has experience as a French teacher and student government leader at West Campus High School. 

    Mr. McCord’s favorite subjects in elementary school were reading and social studies. He still enjoys reading, especially with students. Mr. McCord and his wife, both California natives, met in France 34 years ago and have been married for 31 years. They have three adult-aged children and are enjoying being empty nesters with their two spoiled dogs. Mr. McCord also practiced law for 14 years prior to becoming an educator. 

    “I am sincerely honored and humbled to be the next principal at Edna Maguire. I look forward to becoming an involved member in the community, focused on helping all of our students find success during this piece of their educational adventure,” said Mr. McCord.
