Hogg Middle School will have a new campus leader next year.
Principal Angela Sugarek submitted her resignation in March and, after this school year, will move to Pennsylvania to be chief executive officer of a group of charter schools there. Sugarek has spent the last four years at Hogg, which under her direction has expanded its curriculum and increased test scores and enrollment while decreasing the number of disciplinary actions needed to remove students from classrooms.
Sugarek was previously principal at Durham Elementary, where she was honored as the Texas PTA Elementary Principal of the Year in 2015. Before that, she was a teacher of the year at Hogg and at Barrington Elementary in Austin ISD.
“After 10 years of serving the children and families of Houston, Ms. Sugarek can be proud of her many accomplishments and for the success of Hogg Middle School,” Angela McConico, a school support officer within Houston ISD, said in a recent letter to the Hogg community.
McConico is meeting with Hogg faculty and staff next week to get their input and will also take public input from the community during a meeting with parents scheduled for 5:30-6:30 p.m. Wednesday at Hogg.
The public discussion will focus on the following topics:
– Qualities, skills or characteristics that are important for the next principal to possess.
– Procedures, programs or other school areas that parents want the new principal to keep.
– The most important issues or concerns facing the school.
– What should the new principal should know about the school, staff and community?
Anyone unable to attend the meeting who would like to provide input can contact McConico at firstname.lastname@example.org.
