Travis Unified leaders have approved three new appointments to the district management team, it has been announced.
Hired from within were Clay McAllester, as director of human resources, and Saundra Rushford, incoming Center Elementary principal, replacing McAllester in that post.
McAllester’s appointment comes four months after his serving as interim human resources director. He has been a district employee for three of his 30 years as an educator, serving in a variety of jobs, from teacher to vice principal to principal, before his latest post.
Rushford has held the interim principal position at Center Elementary, at 3101 Markeley Lane, since February.
