A Message from the Board of Trustees
We are pleased to report that we had 65 talented applicants apply for the position of Superintendent of the Lovejoy Independent School District. Many of the applicants were sitting Superintendents in larger districts. Additionally, we had several Chief Academic Officers of some of the strongest academic programs inside and outside of Texas, and we attracted Chief Financial Officers and Assistant Superintendents with stellar reputations and accomplishments. Our talent pool was deep, and with Lovejoy being a destination district, it helped drive some of the most comprehensive talent with which our search firm has worked. We have narrowed our focus to five candidates and will name a lone finalist on June 4, followed by the approval and introduction of our next Lovejoy ISD Superintendent at our regular board meeting on Wednesday, June 26.
