The Windsor Unified School District (WUSD) is pleased to announce that long-time Windsor educator Joe Stadum will be stepping into the role of assistant principal for Windsor High School (WHS) for the 2023-24 school year.  

This is Stadum’s 35th year in secondary education, and it is his 26th year as a part of Windsor schools. Stadum has served as Dean of Students and Athletic Director at both WHS and Saugus High School. He has served as the Summer School Principal, Teacher in Charge for WHS and has been a long-time baseball, golf, and football coach.

Stadum holds a bachelor’s degree in English and a master’s degree in Educational Management. He started his teaching career in 1989, and he became a part of WUSD in 1998. 

“I’m excited to step into the role as Assistant Principal,” Stadum said. “I have held many admin roles over the years, and this is the perfect fit for me. We have a great admin team in place, and I am ready to come along side to support them.” 

“Joe was exactly the kind of person, with the experience and background, that we wanted for this role,” said Director of HR Pete Sullivan. “The fact that he’s an in-house promotion and so well known to our staff, students and community was just the icing on the cake.”

“My goal is to support all students, staff and administrators as we make WHS the go-to place in all of Sonoma County for academics, arts, and athletics,” Stadum said.

Stadum has been married to his wife Leslie for 26 years, has two children, who are both WHS graduates - JT in 2017 and Alana in 2021.

“I’ve lived in Windsor for the last 26 years and I know the students, parents, school staff and the community,” said Stadum. “This is exactly where I want to be.”
