Superintendent Announces New Plan for H.G. Temple Campuses

With the recent opening of the elementary principalship at H.G. Temple Elementary, it provided an opportunity to consider several options available to fill the position. The ultimate goal is to provide strong instructional leadership, instructional planning, coaching support for staff, ensure horizontal and vertical alignment across and between grade levels, provide steady and consistent leadership over time and accomplish this in the most cost effective manner. During the Diboll ISD Board Meeting on Monday, April 24, 2017, Superintendent, Vicki Thomas, presented a restructuring plan to accomplish these goals. The plan included naming one principal to lead both the elementary and intermediate campuses and redirect portions of the elementary principal's salary to be used to provide two campus based Directors of Instruction. The Directors of Instruction will assist the principal in the areas of lesson design, instructional coaching, professional development, assisting with implementation of initiatives, instructional planning and the use of data to differentiate instruction and target individual student needs. Mrs. Thomas stated that she believes this plan will provide great continuity, will build upon the work that has gone before, will provide staff with additional instructional support and will propel both campuses to higher academic achievement.

Mrs. Thomas then announced that Mrs. Nikki Miller will serve as the new Principal of H.G. Temple Elementary and Intermediate Schools and Ms, Mary Hendry will serve as one of the new campus based Directors of Instruction.
