KELLER - Keller ISD's Board of Trustees approved Dr. Randy Reid as the district's new superintendent of schools in a special meeting Thursday night.
The board named Reid the lone finalist for the position on July 2. The state requires a 21-day waiting period before a superintendent can be officially hired.
Reid was superintendent of Tyler ISD since 2007, held the same position in Celina ISD the two years prior to that, and served as assistant superintendent of Richardson ISD from 2000 to 2005.
“It’s an honor to have this opportunity in Keller ISD,” Reid said in a news release. “This is an outstanding district and community, and I’m looking forward to doing my part to add to its legacy of providing a world-class education for all students.”
According to the release, Reid implemented a new curriculum at Tyler ISD that improved academic performance and closed achievement gaps, and oversaw the passage of a $125 million bond in 2008 that build five new elementary schools and renovated two others.
