EL PASO- The EPISD’s superintendent isn't the only district employee in legal trouble.
The assistant principal at Andress High School was arrested for assaulting her husband late last month.
Monica Ortega has been an assistant principal at Andress since September. Court documents show she and her spouse were arguing, when Ortega punched her husband in the lower lip and scratched him with her fingernails. The district says this is a personnel matter and is being handled administratively. Ortega is still the assistant principal for Andress High School.
