Round Rock ISD's chief human resources officer is leaving for a position with the Pflugerville school district.
At its regular meeting May 15, the Pflugerville ISD board approved the appointment of Jane Vigliotti, executive director of the human resource services for Round Rock ISD, as the new principal for PISD's Dessau Middle School starting in the 2014-2015 academic year.
"I've always missed the pull of the starting to the school year. I finally decided that's the biggest ability I have to make an impact," Vigliotti said. "I have been a principal before, and I love being a principal. I wanted to get back to a campus."
Vigliotti said she will start her new job no later than July 7 which is when PISD's service calendar begins.
Vigliotti has worked in human resources for Round Rock ISD for about four years. She previously served the Round Rock ISD as assistant principal and principal of Cedar Valley Middle School and assistant principal at McNeil High School. She also served as assistant principal at Dripping Springs High School. This will be her first position with PISD.
"I'm really excited to be going to a new district and learn their ways of doing things," Vigliotti said.
Vigliotti holds a bachelor's degree in business administration from the University of Texas and a master's of education in educational administration from Texas State University.
"Naming principals is one of the most important decisions a school district can make, and we are dedicated to identifying outstanding instructional leaders to guide our campuses," PISD Superintendent Alex Torrez said in a statement.
The PISD board also named Benjamin O'Connor principal of Rowe Lane Elementary where he works as assistant principal.
