The Hays CISD board of trustees approved Superintendent Eric Wright’s recommendation to appoint David MacRoberts as principal of the new elementary school in Buda’s Sunfield development at their regular meeting Dec. 13.

MacRoberts is the principal at Bluebonnet Elementary School in Bastrop. He has served as a principal for seven years and as an assistant principal for 10.


Additionally, the board had the first reading of the proposed name of the new school—Sunfield Elementary School. The district broke ground on the new school in June, and it is expected to be completed for the upcoming school year in August 2022.

The board is expected to approve or deny the proposed name at the next meeting on Jan. 24.
