A-West principal announces departure

Dr. Robert Bishop will move to a district leadership position after 12 years as principal

Posted

A-West principal Dr. Robert Bishop announced his departure from Arvada West High School Friday, June 8. Bishop, who has been the principal at Arvada West since the summer of 2006, will be moving onto a leadership position as the Executive Director for Administrator Learning for Jeffco Schools, according to a letter sent to A-West parents.

During his 12 years as principal, Bishop oversaw the transition to a new building that opened in 2008 and became the north wing of the school. He oversaw around 4,800 graduates and introduced numerous new traditions such as the spring Advancement Assembly, which offers an opportunity for graduating seniors to say goodbye to their high school teachers and celebrates the end of the year for underclassmen.

“I wish the entire Arvada West Community the best in the new era of leadership. I will miss the fun times, the milestones, the rites, rituals, and traditions, and most of all I will miss the students, parents, and staff that have made A-West a great place for this principal to come to every day for the past 12 years,” said Bishop in his letter.

Bishop’s replacement will be overseen by Jeffco Public Schools achievement director Scott Allensworth.

Bishop’s letter to A-West families and community can be seen on the Arvada West website: http://arvadawest.jeffcopublicschools.org/news/what_s_new/dr__bishop_s_farewell.
