HISD conducting nationwide search for permanent superintendent

The Houston Independent School District Board of Education is conducting a nationwide search for a permanent superintendent.

Trustees are asking the community about the qualities and traits they would like to see in their next district leader.

The HISD board is holding a district-wide meeting on Saturday, Jan. 19, to get input from various district stakeholders, including parents and students, school-based staff, district employees, and business and community members. The board will then use that feedback to create its superintendent profile and begin searching for candidates.
