Dr. Schavon Waggoner will be recommended to the Governing Board as the new principal for Betty Fairfax High School at the June 5 Governing Board meeting.
Waggoner has been an assistant principal for three years at Central High School. She has been with the District since 2007, first as a business teacher and then a professional development specialist at Cesar Chavez High School.
She began her teaching career in 2002 in the Tempe Union High School District. She has a BA from ASU, Masters from ASU and Grand Canyon University, and earned her Doctorate in Curriculum and Instruction at ASU.
Waggoner will be Fairfax’s second principal, following Dr. Zachary Muñoz, who opened the school in 2007. Muñoz will be moving to the District office.
When the Class of 2014 Class graduated May 22, Munoz gave his own Top 10 List of accomplishments for this senior class compared to previous classes.
Among them, the highest cumulative grade point average, the highest number of in-state and out-of-state college enrollees, the highest percentage of students in the District completing the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid), the most International Baccalaureate Diploma candidates (72), a 90% graduation rate and $6.5 million in scholarships earned.
