Waukesha West High School Principal David Towers has resigned for “personal reasons,” effective immediately, after being at the school for about 1-1/2 years.
Towers’ resignation was announced via a letter to parents from Superintendent Todd Gray.
“We regret that we do not have any other information to share with you at this time,” Gray said in the letter. “Mr. Towers offers his thanks and appreciation to the West High parents and community for your support over the last year and a half.”
Towers started as principal at Waukesha West High School in August 2011. He served as an associate principal at Germantown High School from 2009-11. Previously, he was an assistant principal at Germantown.
Waukesha School District staff are developing a plan for operations at the high school.
“At this time the district is working to ensure appropriate coverage for the remainder of the year and will begin planning the recruitment and selection process for a permanent replacement,” Gray said in the letter.
