As the San Angelo ISD Board of Trustees continues its search for the next superintendent following Dr. Carl Dethloff’s retirement in December. We are looking for community input to share the qualities you seek in our next leader.
On Monday, July 17, 2023 during the Regular Board Meeting, the San Angelo ISD Board of Trustees voted in favor of selecting Thompson & Horton, LLC, a consulting and law firm, to facilitate a superintendent search. The firm will assist in finding and hiring a new superintendent to replace Dr. Carl Dethloff who announced he is retiring in December 2023. Thompson & Horton, LLC have facilitated superintendent searches for districts across Texas including Cypress-Fairbanks ISD, Kerrville ISD, McKinney ISD and Northside ISD.
As you may have learned earlier today, it is with mixed emotion that I announced to our school board and leadership team that I have made the decision to retire this December. This fall will mark my 33rd year in Texas Public Schools and my 9th year as superintendent in San Angelo ISD. Serving this community and school system has been a genuine honor, and my 15 years in San Angelo have brought long lasting friendships and great joy. I have grown not only as a public-school leader, but as a person, father, and husband due to the wise counsel and positive example set by so many community leaders, friends, and colleagues. San Angelo has been a blessing to our family, and for that I extend my deepest gratitude.
