Kathryn Hughes is a preschool through fifth-grade school. Among Mr. Keegan's achievements at the school is "his collaboration with staff, community, the Silicon Valley Education Foundation and the Altera Foundation to design a Technology Professional Development School that will serve as a model for 21st century learning and STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) education," Superintendent Carol Piraino said in a written announcement.
