Fort Worth’s School Board “officially” names its superintendent finalist at this evening’s 5:30 board meeting. KERA’s Bill Zeeble has more.
After last Thursday’s 2nd round of candidate interviews, trustees said they found their finalist. Acting Superintendent Walter Dansby has filled the role since taking over for Melody Johnson, who resigned last year. A Long-time Fort Worth ISD employee, Dansby applied for and could be named to the job. Board Vice President Juan Rangel says the next leader takes on a large budget shortfall because of state funding cuts.
