Round Rock ISD officials elected to extend Superintendent Hafedh Azaiez's employment contract through 2026.

What happened

The district's board of trustees voted to extend Azaiez's contract through June 2026 at a Sept. 27 meeting. It is the second time the board has extended the superintendent's contract, as they did so in 2022. He was first hired in 2021 with a contract set to end in June.

What they're saying

“Dr. Azaiez is focused on improving outcomes and expanding opportunities for Round Rock ISD students and also on supporting our teachers so we continue to attract and retain the world-class educators that make us a destination district,” board President Amber Landrum said. “It’s been a pleasure working with him, and we’re looking forward to the future.”
