HISD Trustees met last night for their regular board meeting.
The Board unanimously chose Deputy Superintendent Sonny Cruse as their interim superintendent. He will take over the post from retiring Superintendent, Dr. Steve Johnson, beginning August 16th.
Before becoming deputy superintendent, Mr. Cruse was the superintendent of Bonham ISD.
In the meantime, the board will begin a search for a new superintendent for the district.
The board voted 5 to 1 to delay for a while assignment of a committee to review architectural firm qualifications in choosing a firm that would create plans for a possible future bond project.
Board President J.T. Langley said, “This doesn’t delay anything in the board’s mind about the future of the bond . . . .”
