With the departure of former SBCISD Superintendent Dr. Marc A. Puig becoming official on Friday, Interim Superintendent Dr. Filomena Leo can finally say she has “come back home.” The 1968 San Benito graduate had her four-month contract approved at a board meeting last week and has already began the process of setting up in-school visits once classes start next week.
“I truly believe that it is critical for the school leader to be visible in the schools,” said Dr. Vela. “The entire learning and teaching process takes place at the campuses, so I believe my presence there is extremely important.” Dr. Leo plans to make a rotating schedule to visit each school no matter how long she stays with the district. “I’ve made very personal and professional commitment to this job and to this community,” she added.
