New principals for TUSD 'turnaround' schools

Posted: Updated:

TUCSON, Ariz. -- New prinicpals are headed for Rincon and Palo Verde High Schools, each slated for a "Turnaround."

The TUSD governing board last night appointed Dodge Magnet Middle School principal Cathy Comstock to lead rincon and palo verde interim principal janna acevedo's position will become permanent.

The board tagged both schools last month for the "turnaround model" meaning the entire faculty and administration must reapply for their positions.

"We are committed to that process for these schools over the next three, four, five years, that period of time," said TUSD Superintendent John Pedicone, Ph.D.

Both comstock and acevedo have been with the district as teachers and administrators since the mid 1980s.
