Dotres will take over for Alberto Carvalho will take over as superintendent of the Los Angeles Unified School District on March 1.

Dotres previously was the principal at Hialeah Gardens Elementary and he even served as the Chief of Staff for Carvahlo.

“The first thing I want to do really is meet with my cabinet members and have a good meeting with school principals, because, I have to tell you, I have to really evaluate where they are, what the needs are for the schools and probably have a principal meeting.
