Camino Real Middle School Principal Ida Perales has been appointed principal of the nearby Valley View Middle School campus.
Perales will oversee both schools until January, when the campuses will be consolidated at the new Del Valle Middle School currently being built as part of a new K-8 combination campus with Mission Valley Elementary School.
Perales began her career in education in 2001 as a biology teacher at Ysleta HS, then worked in the El Paso and Socorro school districts for six years before returning to YISD in 2008 to serve as an instructional specialist, assistant principal, and principal. Perales has a bachelor’s degree and a master’s degree from UTEP.
The K-8 combo campus consisting of Mission Valley Elementary School and Del Valle Middle School is one of several new construction projects made possible through the $430.5 million facilities bond approved by voters in November 2015.
