The Houston Independent School District Board of Education is searching for a new superintendent and trustees want input from community members about the qualities and traits they would like to see in their next district leader.

HISD Board of Education President Manuel Rodríguez Jr. and Trustee Diana Dávila have scheduled seven meetings this week to gather feedback from the community that will be used to develop a superintendent candidate profile. The dates and times for additional meetings hosted by other trustees will be announced soon.

Superintendent Terry Grier is stepping down at the end of the month. Trustees selected Deputy Superintendent and Chief Financial Officer Ken Huewitt to serve as interim superintendent while they search for a permanent replacement.

The Board of Education has hired Hazard, Young, Attea & Associates to assist in the superintendent search process. The Illinois-based firm will help trustees host a series of community meetings to gather input from various district stakeholders, including parents and students, school-based staff, district employees, and business and community members. The board will then use that feedback to finalize its superintendent profile, and begin searching for candidates.
