The Brenham ISD Board of Trustees has taken the latest step in the search for a new superintendent.
Six candidates have been selected for interviews from the pool of 48 applicants from across the state and the nation. The board used the profile developed by community members, staff members and district leaders.
Former superintendent Dr. Walter Jackson resigned earlier this year to take the post in the LaPorte ISD.
Board President Natalie Lange stated, “This position is one of the most desirable 5A jobs in the state. The applicant pool has been very competitive, just as expected.”
Lange says the board’s goal now, “…is to interview and carefully research the candidates, and are looking forward to finding an exceptional leader who is the right fit for the district and community.”
The board will interview the six selected candidates next Monday, Tuesday and Thursday. The finalists will be invited back for a second round of interviews.
District officials say the board's goal is to take ample time vetting, selecting,and presenting a lone finalist for the position.
