Seattle Public Schools Exec. Dir. for West Seattle Aurora Lora leaving
Executive Director for the West Seattle region for Seattle Public Schools, Aurora Lora has taken a new job in Dallas, Texas. Her last day on the job in Seattle is July 6. Lora shared the news in a letter to colleagues she wrote and posted today, June, 21.
"It is with mixed emotions that I announce I have accepted a position as Assistant Superintendent for the Dallas Independent School District. In my new position, I will be supervising four executive directors, 45 principals, and will be responsible for overseeing the education of 35,000 students. My last day with the District will be July 6.
This was not an easy decision for me because I have truly loved my experience working with the principals, assistant principals, schools, families and community members of the West Seattle region. I have learned so much in the past two years from my work as an executive director and will genuinely miss the individuals that I have had the pleasure of working with during my time in Seattle.
I know the District is committed to finding a new Executive Director for the West Seattle region very soon. I wish you all the best of luck and look forward to hearing about the successes of the Seattle School District in the years to come."
