Leander ISD Superintendent Dan Troxell announced his resignation April 26 on the district’s website.
Troxell will be leaving for a new position as the deputy executive director for the Texas Association of School Boards, an educational nonprofit that represents and trains school board members across the state.
“I am a passionate advocate for Texas public schools,” Troxell said in the announcement. “By accepting the deputy director position at TASB, I have the opportunity to impact students at a statewide level.”
Prior to joining LISD in 2016, Troxell served as superintendent of Kerrville ISD, assistant superintendent of Cypress-Fairbanks ISD and as principals in Round Rock ISD.
In a 2016 interview with Community Impact Newspaper, Troxell said he pursued a position at LISD because the district is a “destination school system” for parents.
“Being a part of this unique school system was the driving force behind my decision to pursue the LISD superintendent position,” he said at the time.
The LISD school board plans to discuss the superintendent hiring process at a May 2 meeting, according to the district’s website. Until a hiring timeline is in place, Troxell will continue to serve as superintendent.
