Carroll ISD Superintendent David Faltys’ 15-year tenure with the district will come to a close effective Jan. 4, according to a district news release.

Faltys announced his plans for retirement in an Aug. 14 news release.

“It has been a tremendous honor to serve this district as Superintendent, and I want to thank the community for caring for our family and especially my kids,” Faltys said in the release. “From State Championships and New York Jazz competitions to Harvard Debate and America’s Got Talent... I have loved every minute.”

Faltys had planned to announce his retirement after spring break in 2020, but that got pushed back due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

“It’s been a hard year and it didn’t seem right to step away before the new year started,” he said in the release. “We have amazing teachers, administrators, and support staff. They have been working diligently to create a safe and caring environment for our students whether they are learning in-person or virtually. It’s time to lean in to this next phase of leadership.”

The CISD board of trustees is scheduled to deliberate over Faltys’ retirement at an Aug. 17 meeting as well as discuss hiring plans for his eventual replacement.

Faltys has spent 33 years in the public education field. His time at CISD has included the launching of the Carroll Medical Academy, STEM programs and the Carroll Leadership Academy for Supporting Success, according to the news release.

“We have amazing kids here that help us to be a phenomenal district,” Faltys said in the release. “I am proud of the achievements our kids have accomplished during my tenure. I want to finish my time here knowing this community came together during a difficult time to support one another and show the world what it means to be a Carroll Dragon."
