Board President's Update, Dec. 19

Dear Austin ISD Community,

As many of you know, the board voted unanimously on Monday to name Interim Superintendent Paul Cruz as the sole finalist for the position of superintendent of AISD.

Under state law, the board must now wait a minimum of 21 days before extending a final offer for the position.

Our thanks to everyone who attended the community forum this weekend at Lanier High School to meet Dr. Cruz. Your input has been a valuable component of this superintendent search process from the beginning, and we appreciate the time you took to share your feedback with us.

​It has been a great pleasure and honor to serve as the president of your Austin ISD Board of Trustees. As I leave the district, I know it is in the most capable hands, poised to continue to serve our students proudly.

I wish all of you a safe and restful holiday break.
Vincent Torres
