Texas principal will take helm at North Portland high school

Leon Dudley, a high school principal in Dallas, Texas, who says he loves a challenge, will be Jefferson High School's new principal beginning Aug. 14.
Dudley was hired this week by Vicki Phillips, Portland Public Schools superintendent. Phillips also hired Cynthia Harris, a school administrator in California, to serve as area director for all schools in the Jefferson cluster, as well as the elementary and middle schools in the Wilson area.

Dudley, a principal at Dallas Independent School District's Roosevelt High School, has a track record leading urban middle and high schools and closing the achievement gap, according to Phillips.
