Help pick new superintendent

The opportunity to provide input into the search for the Ennis ISD’s new superintendent is one that this community should definitely take advantage of.
The ISD is offering three public meetings, so busy working moms and dads can work a little slack into their schedule for a visit with the board. Meetings open to community members are set from 11:45 a.m.-12:30 p.m., 1:30-2:15 p.m. and 5:15 to 5:45 p.m., Wednesday at the Ennis ISD administration building board room.
It’s important for residents whose children are being educated and shaped in this school district to have the kind of chance that public meetings like the ones that are scheduled Wednesday can provide.
The superintendent’s job is extremely important and plays an influential role in the progress of our local school district. We absolutely must have a person in this role who exhibits strong leadership, energy and compassionate understanding of the unique challenges our students face on a daily basis.
We applaud the district for offering the opportunity for all of us to get involved. Too often, though, we as a community let these kinds of chances pass us by, and we can’t afford to be complacent.
Education, especially in the K-12 arena, is vital in the future of our students. It may sound cliché, but it’s because it’s true. Providing quality education is the key to guiding kids down the path of positive citizenship and away from problems like drug use and crime.
Recruiting a good leader to fill in as Eddie Dunn makes his exit will require time, certainly, and a level of expertise that the board has reached out to the Texas Association of School Boards to provide.
The TASB has assisted hundreds of districts in the state in the past two decades, and places a special emphasis on candidates’ “fit” with the systems in need of leadership.
We need to show we as a community are behind the effort to provide strong leadership in the district, and we also hope the TASB’s experience in that arena serves to help make the tightest possible fit.
