Board of Trustees Vote to Select
Superintendent Search Firm
Board establishes a timeline for the search and hiring process
Whitehouse, Texas (January 31, 2024) - The Whitehouse ISD Board of Trustees met in a special meeting December 11, 2023 to consider and take possible action regarding the superintendent search process. The board hired legal consultants David Thompson and Mike Moses of Thompson & Horton, LLP.
During the open session meeting, David Thompson and Dr. Mike Moses presented a detailed timeline for hiring a new superintendent. The process will include an active search and recruitment process that includes community and employee engagement using focus groups to develop a profile for the type of Superintendent desired. After accepting applications for 30 days, the firm will bring several candidates to the board for interview consideration. There will be two rounds of interviews, after which the board will name a Lone Finalist for the Superintendency. Once that person has been named, there is a 21-day state-required waiting period for contract negotiations before the district can formally hire the candidate.
Board members reviewed two search firms with presentations during the December 11 board meeting and voted in favor of Thompson & Horton, LLP.
