Board President's Update, May 23

Dear Austin ISD Community:

Our work to find a search firm to assist the district in finding a permanent superintendent is moving forward.

After reviewing proposals from four executive search/recruitment services firms, the Austin ISD Board of Trustees narrowed the list of companies to two.

We heard presentations from those two firms at a special meeting May 17, and we are scheduled to approve an agreement with one of those firms at a special meeting May 28.

On June 9, the board and the search firm will begin to discuss the timeline and process for how we find a new, permanent leader for AISD.

The board appreciates the feedback you have shared with us so far during this process, and we encourage you to continue to send us your comments. You can stay up-to-date on our progress by checking our superintendent search website.

Have a safe Memorial Day weekend!


Vincent Torres
Austin ISD Board of Trustees
