New principals in order for Modesto, Davis high schools

Officials are playing musical chairs with principals at Modesto schools.

Modesto High School Principal Hugo Ramos will move to Downey High School as assistant principal of supervision and attendance, a move Modesto City Schools trustees approved Monday. Ramos announced last month he resigned to spend more time with his family.

Other principal vacancies will be decided at the next board of trustees meeting June 22.

Superintendent Arturo Flores made the following recommendations Monday:

-- Jason Manning for Modesto High principal (Manning is currently the school’s associate principal of curriculum and instruction);

-- Eric Corgiat for Davis High School principal (Corgiat is currently associate principal of curriculum and instruction at Beyer High School)

-- Ruth Flores for Bret Hart Elementary School (Flores is currently an assistant principal at the school).
