Harris, GISD's chief strategist for leadership and culture, recently led the district through adopting a new strategic direction.
“We feel like this is a very important decision, probably one of the most important decisions we’re going to make besides hiring a new superintendent,” Trustee Stephanie Blanck said at the special called meeting. “So this decision was not made lightly, and I just wanted everyone to know that there was very deep, thorough discussion.”
GISD’s next steps are to hire a search firm to assist the board with the process of selecting a new superintendent, according to a release from the district.
Brent will serve in an advisory role to the leadership team and school board through June 30.
