Waukesha West Principal Resigns Abruptly

No details provided on the resignation of David Towers, whose last day with Waukesha School District was Friday.

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.

Wauk Resident with no kids in any school Reading the comments in this subject it appears kids having to follow rules is an issue with parents that seem to think they don't have to. This guy may have been tough on students that had problems with rules but this is the time to learn to do so not when they lose a job or make a poor decision down the road. Discipline your children when needed and watch them become better individuals that may just surprise you!

PBosch I have been to many school board meetings. Discussions and responses are rare to say the least.

Mr. Lundt, I'm sure you're right. But I bet it's because questions are rarely presented by the public.

Not my experience Outside of scheduled speakers, I have yet to see them open up the floor. I ended up talking to the SB members during breaks. They were in general accomodating and polite. However, it eliminated the purpose for me to attend meetings.

Hmm. Then I guess we're truly left with nothing but hearsay and unsubstantiated innuendo as weapons... I'll bow out of that.
