Alvarez will replace Bill Faflick, who is leaving the district to become executive director-elect of the Kansas High School Activities Association.
“Mr. Alvarez has many years of experience working in our high schools and middle schools and will be a tremendous asset to our district’s leadership team,” Superintendent John Allison said in a statement issued by the district Thursday.
Before becoming principal at Northwest High, Alvarez served as principal at Northeast Magnet High School and Coleman Middle School.
