On Oct. 19, 2021, Dr. Tom Leonard announced his intention to retire as Eanes ISD Superintendent. The board’s aim is to have the next superintendent in place prior to the beginning of the 2022-2023 school year. Information about the search process will be shared through parent emails, social media and the Eanes ISD website.
At the Oct. 25 Eanes ISD Board Special Meeting, the Board of Trustees interviewed and voted 7-0 to hire Thompson & Horton LLP to conduct the search for the next Superintendent of Schools. Based out of Houston but with an office in Austin, Thompson & Horton LLP has a wealth of professional experience and work in public education and is very familiar with Texas school superintendents and national school leaders. Families, staff, advocates and the community will have an opportunity to give input into the desired leadership characteristics for a new school superintendent.
December 7 & 8 - Thompson & Horton LLP will hold focus groups for invited attendees
December 8 - Eanes ISD Board Meeting - Consultants will review focus group feedback with Board of Trustees in open session
December 9-15 - Survey open for the entire Eanes community to provide feedback
The search process will include parent, staff, student and community feedback to assist the Board of Trustees in sharing expectations for leadership characteristics and skills for Eanes ISD's next superintendent.
