KISD Board of Trustees Approves
Superintendent Search Firm
At the August 18 meeting of the Kerrville ISD Board of Trustees, the Board voted to hire Thompson and Horton LLP to assist with KISD’s superintendent search.
Thompson & Horton LLP search consultants include Mr. David Thompson, an attorney with Thompson & Horton LLP who currently serves as legislative counsel for the Texas Association of School Administrators, and Dr. Mike Moses, former Texas Commissioner of Education, who has also served as superintendent of schools in four Texas school districts. Thompson & Horton LLP has conducted many school superintendent searches in districts of various sizes such as Alamo Heights ISD, Allen ISD, Georgetown ISD, Highland Park ISD, and Katy ISD.
“The obvious goal of the search is to identify the most qualified school executive available to lead the District,” Thompson and Moses said. “We will work with the Board of Trustees to identify the appropriate selection criteria.”
The firm proposed a search process and timeline including the opportunity for the Kerrville community to participate in focus groups and collecting input through online surveys. Following the application deadline, each candidate will be reviewed and the firm will work with the Board to appoint candidates who will then complete two rounds of interviews with the Board of Trustees.
“The opportunity to present a proposal to the Kerrville ISD Board of Trustees is deeply appreciated. Our role is to serve at the pleasure of the Board and to ensure that trustees do, in fact, drive the search for a new superintendent,” Thompson and Moses said.
More information about the KISD superintendent search will be forthcoming.
