Superintendent Tim Taylor announced Tuesday, Dec. 20,  that Dr. Anthony Jones has accepted the position of interim principal at Fellows Elementary School for the remainder of the current school year.

Associate Superintendent Mandy Ross said a transition team composed of Fellows staff representatives and the PTO co-presidents supported Dr. Jones for his ability to collaborate with students, staff, and families, as well as his history with the District.

Dr. Jones said he’s committed to working with Fellows students, families and staff during this transition.

“It’s my desire to help Fellows students, staff and families during this leadership transition, and to continue the District’s work of supporting what’s best for our students.”
