Board President's Update, Oct. 17

Dear Austin ISD Community,

An important milestone is upon us regarding the superintendent search process—the deadline for all interested candidates to submit their application.

Ray and Associates Inc., the executive search firm hired by the board of trustees to facilitate the process, continues to recruit candidates. The deadline for applications is Oct. 20, and all interested candidates can visit the search firm’s website to submit an application. 

Finding the right superintendent for the unique needs of the Austin Independent School District is the board’s most important task, so we will leave no stone unturned to find the right person to lead this district.

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.
