Board President's Update, Dec. 12

Dear Austin ISD Community, 

As many of you may know, on Wednesday, our executive search firm Ray and Associates informed Austin ISD trustees that two of the top three superintendent candidates invited to participate in the public forum had declined to participate further in the search process. 

With their withdrawal from consideration, Interim Superintendent Paul Cruz became the only remaining candidate for the position. 

The board would like to invite you to a community forum beginning at 10 a.m. this Saturday, Dec. 13, at Lanier High School.

During the forum, a moderator will introduce Dr. Cruz, who will then make a short presentation. His presentation will be followed by 30 minutes of moderated questions from the community. 

Child care, light refreshments and interpretation will be offered. We have truly appreciated all your input and participation in the search process, and we encourage everyone to attend the forum, if possible. 

During our regular board meeting on Monday, Dec. 15, trustees will consider action to name a sole finalist for superintendent of AISD. 

As always, please continue to check our superintendent search website for the most up-to-date information. 

Vincent Torres
Austin ISD Board of Trustees​
