In their meeting last night, HISD Trustees decided to have a search done for a new Superintendent to replace Dr. Steve Johnson who is retiring from the position.
Trustees Sam Moak and Justin Brock were opposed to the search and wished to save the district funds by having an internal search. The two trustees were in favor of installing former Bonham ISD Superintendent and current HISD Deputy Superintendent Sonny Cruse to the post. Other trustees wanted to broaden the search to select the best person for the job.
The board’s next move is to engage a search firm. They’ll discuss the issue at their next meeting scheduled for Thursday, July 17th, at 6 PM.
The district is also looking for a new principal for Huntsville Intermediate School. The school’s principal, Dr. Ivan Velasco, resigned to take an administrative position in Willis.
