Maricopa Unified School District’s Human Resources Director Tom Beckett said the district still cannot comment on the reasoning behind the leave, “but I can tell you that we are all very happy to have Mr. Abel back in his administrative role leading Maricopa Wells Middle School.”

Abel could not be reached for comment.

Filling Abel’s position temporarily was Maricopa High School’s new Assistant Principal Thad Miller, who had previously held the same role at MWMS.

Miller was transferred to MHS early in the school year, switching positions and schools with one of MHS’s assistant principals, Mallory Miller, no relation.

“(Thad) Miller will be returning to Maricopa High School on Monday, Sept. 25,” Beckett said.
