Mitchell May Return As Vice Principal If He Isn't Granted Tenure

Beloved administrator already has tenure as vice principal of Schuyler-Colfax Middle School. Mitchell was appointed interim principal in 2010. Lobbied for tenure as principal at a special hearing Monday night.

If the Board of Education decides not to grant Robert Mitchell tenure as principal, the administrator will have the option of remaining at as vice principal.

Mitchell pleaded his case for tenure to Superintendent Ray Gonzalez, the board, and other district officials .

Gonzalez recommended to the board earlier this year that Mitchell not be granted tenure as principal. The board took no action on the recommendation, said board President Donald Pavlak Jr. 

Mitchell requested the hearing after learning he would not be granted tenure.

Mitchell has tenure as vice principal, a position he held for 12 years before the board in December 2010. 

District officials did not say Tuesday afternoon whether or not the board has granted Mitchell tenure. Officials have three days to respond to Mitchell's testimony. 

Parents and teachers have publically expressed their support for Mitchell being granted tenure.
