Board President's Update, Oct. 31

Dear Austin ISD Community,

Happy Halloween! As you enjoy the holiday and the cooler weather, know that your Austin ISD Board of Trustees continues our work to find the right superintendent for the unique needs of Austin ISD.

Ray and Associates Inc., the executive firm hired to facilitate the superintendent search process, reported that more than 90 people completed an application for the position—an impressive number.  

 According to our current timeline, the board will review applications and interview candidates in late November. By early December, we expect to present finalists to the community. 

We always welcome your thoughts and invite you to share them with the board via email or during the public comment portion of any meeting. I encourage you to check the superintendent search website frequently for updates to the timeline and to ensure that you have the most up-to-date information on the search for a new superintendent.  

Many thanks to all the early voters who completed their civic duty and cast their ballots ahead of the Nov. 4 election. I invite all other registered voters to vote today (the last day of early voting) or on Election Day, Tuesday, Nov. 4. Click here for polling locations and information.
