      Interim Superintendent Henry Yzaguirre

    A graduate of South San High School who went on to serve our district twice is returning as the Interim Superintendent for the district.

    Henry Yzaguirre joins the South San Antonio Independent School District from the Southside Independent School District where he most recently served as Executive Director for Operations. The educator and coach began his career at West Campus before moving to another district. He would later return to South San ISD as Assistant Principal at Kazen Middle School, ultimately taking the reins as South San High School principal followed by Executive Director of  Student Support Services. 

    He calls himself a product of the South San ISD community with deep roots in the neighborhoods. 

    “I always draw back to it because I know what these kids' challenges are,” Yzaguirre said. “I know first hand how to make better decisions in getting our kids the better resources so they can become productive citizens and hopefully come back and serve their community again.”

    During the next few days, he will hit the ground running. 

    “Right now, I just want to bring some ease to our staff that they’re going to continue to be supported,” he added. “I want ro make sure that they have the resources that they need in their classrooms or in their departments to be successful and give our students what they need.”

    Yzaguirre is cognizant of the importance of keeping operations operating smoothly.

    “A lot of staff have been here for a long time and they deserve the very best that we can provide,” Yzaguirre said. 

    He is encouraging staff to rest up during the holidays to be ready for the challenges the new year will bring.

    “We are going to be running on eight cylinders come the Spring semester and we’re going to have a lot of work to do and the expectation is that we get it done,” he said. 
    “That’s our goal.”
