Please welcome Principal Appointee, John Rocha to Bailey Middle School

Dear Bailey Middle School Faculty, Staff Students and Parents:

We are pleased to announce that the Board of Trustees has approved the appointment of Mr. John Rocha as the Principal of Bailey Middle School. Currently principal of Menchaca Elementary School, Mr. Rocha has previously served as assistant principal at Dobie Middle School and Zilker Elementary, as well as principal intern at LBJ High School. His teaching experience includes both 5th and 8th grade classrooms. Mr. Rocha participates in an advisory and leadership capacity in both educational and community settings at the district and state levels.

In his role as principal, Mr. Rocha has shown himself to be an effective leader who fosters a positive campus climate, who develops and retains faculty, and who works well with a diverse student population to maximize student achievement. Mr. Rocha's experience as an instructional leader on a campus with demographics similar to Bailey will facilitate the transition in leadership and be very beneficial for Bailey in its application of rigorous academic standards to prepare students to compete effectively in academic and extracurricular programs in high school and for college admission.

Mr. Rocha is eager to assume the role of principal at Bailey Middle School. As a member of the community, he has a clear vision for Bailey's upward trajectory and looks forward to building relationships with students, staff and parents. Mr. Rocha will be transitioning over the next few weeks and will be in place at Bailey before the end of the school year. You'll be invited to a Meet-and-Greet Reception for Mr. Rocha at Bailey Middle School in the near future. Watch for information from the campus. He is looking forward to meeting you and to serving as your principal.

Sincerely,

Ariel Cloud
Associate Superintendent for Area 1 Schools
