Canutillo Independent School District selects superintendent
El Paso, TX — Teachers, students and faculty in the Canutillo Independent School District have a new superintendent. The board of trustees decided late Tuesday night to hire Dr. Pedro Galaviz as their new superintendent. He is currently the executive director of secondary schools for the Round Rock school district, outside of Austin. As NewsChannel 9 has reported, the district has been without a superintendent for several months after former superintendent, Dr. Damon Murphy, was removed from the district after internal auditors found he inappropriately promoted 66 sophomores to the 11th grade to prevent them from taking the mandatory 10th grade TAKS test. A start date has not been set but Galaviz is expected to begin work by the end of the school year.
