The following is a statement from Langley HS Student Advisory Council Representative Thomas Liu
I have learned earlier today that Dr. Garza is leaving FCPS later this year, moving on in her career.
Dr. Garza became the Superintendent of our great school district in 2013, the same year that I came to American and got enrolled into Longfellow Middle School. During the past few years, Dr. Garza has reformed our school district into a even better place for education. I will like to thank Dr. Garza for pushing for late start for high schools, a benefit for most students in high schools around our county.
Although Dr. Garza is leaving FCPS later this year, as Langley's representative to the Student Advisory Council, I will do my best to work with Dr. Garza on student issues before she leaves FCPS.
I will also be waiting for the School Board to name a interim Superintendent in the upcoming weeks.
