New campus administrators gather as a large group for the opening session.
New campus principals and administrators with less than one year experience in an administrative role in CFISD took part in orientation sessions on July 17 at the Instructional Support Center. Attendees were split into groups based on campus level (elementary, middle and high school). Groups rotated through three separate sessions covering educational support services; curriculum and instruction; and school improvement and accountability. Humberto Abitua, who is beginning his first year as assistant principal at Thornton MS, said, "The presenters took informative content and introduced it in a fun and meaningful way." The new principal at Frazier ES, Gloria Vásquez said, "I feel ready and energized to begin my new journey in CFISD."
Dr. Linda Macias, associate superintendent of curriculum and assessment & accountability, welcomes new administrators.
