Superintendent grateful for support in growing district

Superintendent John Chapman accepts his award as the region’s superintendent of the year earlier this year. Although his leaving has not been made official yet, Ennis Superintendent John Chapman sent out a statement that he will forever be grateful to the district he has called home for the past four and a half years. On May 16, Dr. Chapman was named the lone finalist in the superintendent search at the Carrollton-Farmers Branch Independent School District. The CFBISD Board must wait 21 days before officially offering him a contract. If hired, Chapman would be replacing Dr. Bobby C. Burns, 60, who is retiring after 10 years. Shortly after a special called meeting on Monday night with the Ennis ISD Board of Trustees, Chapman released this statement. “The town of Ennis opened its arms to our family on Jan. 24, 2014,” Chapman said. “For that, we will always be appreciative and grateful. You have treated us as one of your own, and there will always be a special place in my heart for Ennis ISD. I have served alongside a group of fantastic administrators. We have seen Ennis ISD make some great gains, which has only benefited the students we serve. As a community, we have rallied and have found ways to meet individual student needs. In return, students are performing at a higher standard. An organization can never go wrong with students as their core focus. The pathways have been set which will benefit future generations. I am proud to have been a part of the journey. Continue to move forward.” Read stories like this and more in your latest edition of The Ennis News. Be informed, subscribe today!
