McKinney, Texas – With the 2019–2020 school year officially in the books, McKinney ISD principals begin to turn their full attention to the 2020–2021 school year.

For Kyle Luthi, the new school year will bring with it a familiar leadership role in a new setting, as he moves from his long time position as principal of Webb Elementary to serve as principal at the MISD Disciplinary Alternative Education Program (DAEP).

He brings 13 years of experience as a campus administrator and 18 years in education—all in MISD—to his new role.

“I very excited to have Kyle as the new principal at DAEP,” said Assistant Superintendent of Secondary Student Support Dr. Melinda DeFelice. “He is an amazing person and will bring so much to that campus.”

Luthi began his career in 2002 as a fifth grade teacher at Malvern Elementary. By 2007, he had moved from the classroom into campus administration to serve as the assistant principal at Webb. Three years later, Luthi accepted the principal job at Webb and has served in that capacity since 2010.

As Luthi looks ahead to his new position as principal of DAEP, he looks back with fondness on his time at Webb. “It has been an honor to serve the wonderful students and community of Webb Elementary,” Luthi said. “I am so grateful for the relationships and experiences that have occurred over the past 13 years, and Webb will always hold a special place in my heart.”

Luthi earned his bachelor’s degree in education from the University of Wyoming and a master’s degree in education administration from Dallas Baptist University.

“I look forward to working with and serving the students and staff at DAEP,” Luthi said. “I know that together, we can make a difference in the lives of those we serve and make a positive impact on our schools and community.”
