Ivan Karr took over as interim principal for Sharyland High School on Nov. 3. Karr has been with the Sharyland school district for nine years as an assistant principal. He has been with the high school for four years and prior to that he was employed by a Sharyland elementary.
“We looked at the current school leaders under Ms. Wilson and felt that in order to have continuity of administration, one of the assistant principals would be selected,” Interim Superintendent Filomena Leo said. “After speaking with them individually and speaking to their site-based team, made up of teachers, community representatives, parents, it was my opinion that Mr. Karr would be able to provide that leadership.”
Every school has a Campus Educational Improvement Council, or site-based team, whose purpose is to improve instruction at the campus. The council was state mandated in 1989 and each year it prepares a campus plan with strategies to help the students thrive.
