MANOR, Texas (KXAN) — Manor High School’s principal and three assistant principals are being reassigned to other locations in the district, effective Tuesday.
District Superintendent Dr. Royce Avery says the decision was made in an effort to move the right people to the right positions. “Campus leadership is the driving force of reform… This is a critical beginning point for Manor High School,” he said. “Although change can be uncomfortable, it can also bring about wonderful outcomes for the students and community.”
Manor ISD says the reassignments were not the result of any disciplinary action.
Principal Emilio Vargas will be replaced by the district’s director of social emotional learning, Dr. Keith Brooks, on an interim basis. Vargas, who was named as the school’s principal in August 2015, will take over the social emotional learning director position, also on an interim basis. Two other assistant principals are being moved from other campuses to join Manor High School’s administrative team.
The quick change in campus leadership is designed so there is no void in leadership, the district said, in an effort to make Manor High a “Public School of Choice.”
Vargas, according to a Manor ISD biography, was previously the superintendent for Goliad ISD. He has 23 years of experience in education, including 13 years as an administrator.
