Board President's Update, Sept. 19

Dear Austin ISD Community,
On Sept. 8, the Austin ISD Board of Trustees discussed with our executive search firm Ray and Associates Inc. in a televised meeting the best way to engage superintendent finalists with the public. The firm presented us with three options and we decided to use the hybrid approach option.

In this process, we would create an interview team made up of community members nominated by the board, and we would also hold a public forum so interested parents, students, staff members or stakeholders may participate.
The board will continue to discuss this process at a special board meeting scheduled for Monday, Sept. 22.
We always welcome you to share your thoughts with the board via email or during the Citizens Communication portion of any regular board meeting.
I encourage you to check the superintendent search website frequently for possible updates to the schedule and to ensure that you have the most up-to-date information on the search for a new superintendent.
Vincent Torres
Austin ISD Board of Trustees
