Plano ISD Narrows Superintendent Search
Plano’s school board could pick a superintendent finalist at tonight’s special board meeting. The search is to replace Doug Otto, who stepped down in January.
School Board President Tammy Richards is confident trustees have narrowed the field to a qualified few. They began with 30 candidates.
Richards: We certainly want someone who has extraordinarily high standards because that’s what we hold as a community. We’re basically an academic juggernaut producing fabulous national merit finalists, lots of science fair winners and so we have to continue that. But at the same time we want to make sure that we’re offering opportunities for all kids to achieve their dreams.
The search is the only item on tonight’s agenda. Plano’s school district holds 55,000 students. The last superintendent earned $291,000.
