Principal's Message


Principal Tye Allenbrand
Welcome to Megan Cope Elementary School, proud home of the Seahawks! I am looking forward to an outstanding year that is built upon collaboration and efforts placed on the success for all children. As a school, we are fortunate to have an exceptional staff that will continue to challenge students academically and develop a love of life-long learning in every student. To assist students with obtaining the skills to be college and career ready, Megan Cope will maintain our focus towards AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination).
Our campus staff also strives to ensure that Megan Cope is a safe, welcoming, and
encouraging school environment. This begins by reinforcing children to be kind to themselves
and others through integrity, responsibility, and compassion. Megan Cope will continue to build
upon the Positive Behavior Intervention Supports (PBIS), which teaches students essential
character traits and encourages students to model those behaviors.


Although this will be my first year at Megan Cope I truly already feel at home. I intend on using
my experiences and knowledge as a teacher, special education administrator, and elementary
school administrator to further advance the school. Also joining the team this year is our new
assistant principal Mr. Kelley. Between Mr. Kelley, Mr. Cooper, and myself we are here to serve
and support the school community.


I am excited to get to know the students and families and welcome any feedback you may have.
Working together I am confident we can uphold the school motto and ensure that all of our
students are “Soaring to SUCCESS, Nothing Less”!

Assistant Principal Mr. Kelley

Seahawk Families!

It is with great enthusiasm that I write this letter to our Megan Cope community.  Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year! I am truly honored to continue to serve SJUSD as the new Assistant Principal at Megan Cope and look forward to working with Principal Tye Allenbrand and Asst. Principal Dave Cooper, as well as the rest of our staff, in our efforts to do whatever it takes to advance the achievement of every single student on our campus. Collaborating and leading together, I am confident that we will  create a school culture with a truly rigorous and enriching school experience.


The Elementary school years are important and critical times for students. What happens during these years will have a lasting impression on their growth and development in Middle and High School. My goal as Assistant Principal is to provide the leadership that will facilitate a school environment that is safe and respectable, in order for your child to receive the best possible academic instruction. I am confident that our school will continue to be a place where our students can learn and grow academically and socially.


Feel free to stop by and say hello, as my door is always open. If there is anything I can assist you with, please let me know.




Mr. Kelley
