Richard Porter has left the Vallejo City Unified School District after one year with the organization.
Reached by phone Thursday afternoon, Porter — who taught at Franklin Middle School — said he is moving on from the school district to be the interim-executive director at the Global Center for Success.
The center works with various agencies to help homeless undeserved individuals in the community.
He will replace executive director Elvie DeLeon at the end of the month.
According to the district’s personnel actions, Porter is retiring from the district.
VCUSD Superintendent Ramona Bishop said during Wednesday’s school board meeting that Porter has accrued time as an educator, thus his ability to retire after one year with the district.
