Curington Elementary’s, Tanya Tate, was selected as principal for Dr. Ferdinand L. Herff Elementary School. Principal Tate has been at her current campus for almost four years and said she is looking forward to seeing familiar faces at her new campus.

“Both principals have built extremely positive learning environments on their campus,” said BISD Superintendent Dr. Price. “That is a feeling you notice when you walk in the doors, and we look forward to seeing them establish this same atmosphere on our new campuses.”
Both principals will continue to lead their current campuses through the end of the current school year. The district will begin the search for Fabra and Curington’s new principals in May. The selected principals will begin at their new campus for the 2019-2020 school year.
