At a special meeting on Thursday, November 4, the Northwest ISD Board of Trustees designated Leasor Crass as the search firm assisting in the selection of the next district superintendent.

Leasor Crass, based in the Fort Worth area, has assisted the superintendent searches at more than 20 school districts. With its selection, the firm will soon work with trustees to set a specific timeline for the selection of Northwest ISD’s next superintendent as well as a candidate profile. Following this process, the firm will accept applicants on behalf of trustees.

The next superintendent will follow Dr. Ryder Warren, who recently announced his planned retirement, effective July 1, 2022. A lone finalist is anticipated to be named in the spring. The state requires a 21-day waiting period between the naming of a lone finalist and when that person can be officially hired. Trustees and Dr. Warren plan to create a smooth transition for his successor, with the next superintendent set to meet with Dr. Warren as well as district and community leaders throughout the spring.

Once a timeline and candidate profile are set, a superintendent search section will be added to the Northwest ISD website at www.nisdtx.org.
