HISD wants to hear from you about superintendent search

Schedule of community meetings seeking public input

HOUSTON - The Houston Independent School District is hosting a series of meetings to seek input from the public about the district's search for a new superintendent.

HISD said the input would include "qualities and traits they would like to see in their next district leader."

Residents can also provide feedback online at www.houstonisd.org.

Grenita Lathan was named interim superintendent after Richard Carranza's departure in March 2018. The district then named former superintendent Abe Saavedra as interim superintendent in October 2018, only to go back to Lathan after Saavedra removed his name.
