IMPERIAL — The Imperial Unified School District trustees have approved Charles "Chuck" Bush as principal for Frank Wright Intermediate School for the 2001-2002 school year.
Bush is a vice principal at Wilson Junior High School in El Centro.
"He brings a strong sense of leadership," said Barbara Layaye, district superintendent.
"He has an excellent understanding of the unique needs of middle-schoolers."
Stan Armstrong, school board president, spoke highly of Bush as well. The school board approved hiring Bush during a special meeting this week.
"He was hired from a good pool of candidates," said Armstrong.
"He was the top candidate and we feel what he has as far as curriculum … the fact that he knows the Valley and he is the vice principal at Wilson, that he can bring a solid curriculum base to us and a higher degree of professionalism," Armstrong said.
