Superintendent announces leadership changes

Dear Team HISD:

HISD’s Chief Operating Officer, Leo Bobadilla, has accepted a similar position in Broward County, Florida. I have asked Chief Technology Information Officer Lenny Schad to assume the responsibilities of the Construction & Facilities Department, including the 2012 bond program, until we hire a new Chief Operating Officer.

The rest of the departments that reported to Leo have been reassigned to other members of HISD’s administration:

  • Business Assistance, including Warehouse Operations, Risk Management and Supplier Diversity will become part of the Finance Department and report to Deputy Superintendent and Chief Financial Officer Ken Huewitt.
  • Transportation and Nutrition Services will become a part of the Office of Student Support and report to Chief Student Support Officer Mark Smith.
  • The HISD Police Department will report directly to me with assistance from Chief of Staff Jason Spencer.

I have full confidence that our leadership team will continue the excellent work being done by these departments, and the transition will be a smooth one. Leo’s assignment for the remainder of his tenure will be to support the transition in each area and consult with those who have new duties. I also would like to thank Leo for his work with HISD, and we wish him well in his new role.

Thank you for your continued dedication to the students of HISD during this time of transition.


Terry B. Grier, Ed. D.
Superintendent of Schools
