amy goodloeThe Region 5 Leadership Team is pleased to announce that Dr. Amy Goodloe has been named the new principal of Chantilly High School!

Dr. Amy Goodloe holds a Doctor of Education (EdD) in Education Leadership and Policy Studies with a concentration in Special Education and Social Foundations of Education, a Master of Teaching: Special and Elementary Education-Dual Endorsement, and a Bachelor of Arts (with distinction) in Psychology from the University of Virginia.  Dr. Goodloe has 16 years of experience serving as the principal of Oak Hill Elementary School and Rocky Run Middle School (both of which serve as feeders into Chantilly HS).  Dr. Goodloe has 21 years of school administration experience, having served as an assistant principal at Sangster Elementary School and Oak Hill Elementary School prior to becoming a principal.  She started her career with Fairfax County Public Schools (FCPS) as a teacher at Lees Corner ES in 1996.

Dr. Goodloe is currently serving as the principal of Rocky Run Middle School, which is a diverse school with a large Advanced Academics Center, Enhanced Autism Program, and English Language Programs.   During her nearly 8 years at Rocky Run, she has demonstrated her ability to connect with her school community, engage with all families, innovate, and effectively implement practices to impact student achievement.  Dr. Goodloe collaborated with the administrative team, staff, community stakeholders, and students to implement the Rocky Run Middle School Vision which created opportunities for personal growth based on a culture of equity, collective efficacy, and collaboration.  She led work to engage families through a variety of community events (coffees, learning walks, town halls, Welcoming Walkthroughs, book clubs, etc.) to ensure students and families felt connected, supported, and informed before during, and post pandemic.  Dr. Goodloe led the school’s efforts in innovation by piloting FCPSOn, the 1:1 technology pilot for blended learning at the middle school level.  This groundbreaking work led to Rocky Run MS serving as a demonstration site for internal and external school observations over multiple years as other schools and systems transitioned to this model.  Dr. Goodloe has elevated student voice by creating and providing opportunities for students to engage as peer leaders, provide feedback on student activities, serve as mentors, participate in student focus groups, and by implementing the student-focused program, Sources of Strength.  During her time as principal, Dr. Goodloe also oversaw a complicated $50 million complete school renovation project that transformed Rocky Run MS into an energy efficient, welcoming, accessible, modern learning facility. 

Dr. Goodloe has earned numerous educational awards including being named FCPS Outstanding Principal (2020), Outstanding Principal, Region 5 (2020), Outstanding Principal Nominee (2013 & 2019), and First Year Principal of the Year Nominee (2007).  In addition to her school leadership roles, she has served as an adjunct professor at the University of Virginia to prepare and support candidates for school leadership in FCPS.     

In her spare time, Dr. Goodloe is a proud parent and cheerleader for her three children and participates in their activities: lacrosse, cheer, and theater.  She’s a big UVA and University of Michigan sports fan.  She enjoys being outside to walk her two dogs, exercise with friends, and she loves to escape to the beach!  Please join me in welcoming Dr. Amy Goodloe as the new principal of Chantilly High School!  She starts her new position on March 1.
