A new top cop for the Hillsborough school district



Johnny Bush is leaving the principal post at Robinson High School to replace long-serving Linda Kipley as head of the Hillsborough County school district's Office of Professional Standards.

OPS, as Kipley's department is called, oversees investigations into employee misconduct. The staff also oversees contractor screening under the Jessica Lunsford Act.

Kipley, 65, has worked for the school district since 1980.

Bush, 53, joined the district in 1997 as a teacher at Brandon High School. He's been Robinson's principal since 2012.

The board also approved these assistant principal appointments: Troy  Vasaturo, a former peer mentor evaluator, to McLane Middle School; Denise Howard, former teacher leader at Robles Elementary, to Cleveland Elementary; and Tracy Crothers, former district resource teacher, to Miles Elementary.
