Lewisville ISD Superintendent Kevin Rogers announced Nov. 2 that he will be retiring effective Jan. 31.

LISD’s board of trustees is expected to meet soon to determine next steps in the search for a new leader for the district that spans 13 communities and has more than 50,000 students.


“LISD has always been an incredible district, and I am grateful I was given the privilege to try and make it an even better place than it was when I started,” Rogers said in a Nov. 2 release. “And I think we did that, thanks to the tremendous support of our students, staff, parents and the communities we serve.”

Rogers has spent more than 35 years in public education, all of them at LISD, the release stated. He joined the district in 1986 as a teacher and coach and advanced through the ranks before being named superintendent in May 2015, according to the release.

“I have known Dr. Rogers for a very long time, and there is no way we could ever thank him enough for the impact he has had on our district,” board President Tracy Scott Miller said in the release. “He is a man of integrity, and every decision he made was always about what was best for our students and staff.”
