NBISD searches for a superintendent
During a Jan. 29 special meeting, the NBISD board of trustees selected JG Consulting to head up the district’s search for a superintendent.
Superintendent Randy Moczygemba announced Jan. 12 his plans to retire after more than 35 years in education, including 13 with NBISD.
Moczygemba will officially retire June 30 after his replacement is found.
JG Consulting is an Austin-based firm that has conducted searches for more than 100 national and local school districts, including Austin ISD, Houston ISD and San Marcos CISD.
According to the district, the firm was chosen in part because of the team’s experience conducting searches through primarily virtual formats during the coronavirus pandemic and their connections to national education communities.
The board will hold a special meeting Feb. 3 at 6 p.m. in the NBISD Administration Center Boardroom, located at 1000 N. Walnut Ave., New Braunfels, to discuss the appointment. Attendees are required to wear a face covering, and social distancing will be observed.
