EL PASO, Texas (KTSM) — Canutillo Independent School District is welcoming a new member to its Curriculum and Instruction Department.

Laura Schenk has been appointed as the inaugural Elementary Curriculum Coordinator, who will provide district-wide leadership and management of the elementary school curriculum.
