AHS Hires AP for Special Education

On Monday, April 11, the Avon Board of School Trustees approved a recommendation to hire Robb King as Assistant Principal for Special Education at Avon High School.

King distinguished himself from among a crowded and competitive field of candidates.

“Robb King brings a passion for serving students with disabilities," says Principal Matt Shockley. "After being a high school principal for the past two years, he is excited about returning to his roots in special education. He brings classroom and college teaching experience as well as an extensive leadership background in special education. Robb will be a significant asset to our school staff and leadership team as he brings expertise to best serve a growing student population at our school.”

King earned his Bachelor's Degree from Purdue University and a Master of Arts in Teaching and building-level administrator license from Marian University. He has served as Special Education Teacher in IPS, Adjunct Professor at Marian University, and Student Services Coordinator at Emmerich Manual High School. He oversaw special education for schools in four states as Regional Director of Student Services at Charter Schools USA Network before returning to serve as Principal at Manual in early 2020.

Robb, his wife, and their four children live in Plainfield. He will officially begin his role this summer.

Welcome to Avon Schools, Mr. King!
