We are excited to announce that the Governing Board selected Dr. Danelia Portillo to be the next Superintendent of the Roosevelt School District. Dr. Portillo has served as the Executive Director of Teaching and Learning for over three years, where her division helped elevate Roosevelt schools' letter grades to B’s and C’s from D’s and F’s through the implementation of new and viable curriculum in all areas.
Dr. Portillo began her superintendency on Monday, Feb. 6. We offer sincere and heartfelt thanks to Mrs. Shenell Alexander and Mrs. Megan Gestson who served as Co-Interim Superintendents during the search process. We look forward to continuing to thrive as a district under Dr. Portillo's leadership.
