The Lewisville ISD school board anticipates the search for a new superintendent will be finalized by March, according to a timeline from the district.

A Lewisville ISD superintendent search timeline, released by the district, outlines the search goals made by the board, according to the district website.

In the timeline, the position application period ends in January and the trustees will interview the candidates. By February, the board is expected to name a sole finalist, according to the district.

A new superintendent will be formally hired by the board in March.

The search comes after Superintendent Kevin Rogers announced his retirement on Nov. 2. Since then, the board has named Gary Patterson as the district’s interim superintendent until a replacement is named. The new superintendent is anticipated to start during the spring or summer.


The job posting requires applicants to have a Texas superintendent certificate, hold a doctoral degree and have prior superintendent experience, according to the district’s candidate profile.

The district will host several public input and focus groups for the community to provide input regarding superintendent qualities. District staff and the community input will be held at separate times, according to the district’s website.

Public meetings will be held on Dec. 9 at Flower Mound 9th grade campus; Dec. 13 at Lewisville High School; Dec. 14 at Marcus High School and Hebron 9th grade campus; and Dec. 15 at The Colony High School, according to the district’s website. LISD staff meetings will be held 4-5 p.m. with community members to meet after 6-7:30 p.m.

A survey is also available on the district’s website regarding the position at https://www.lisd.net/suptsearch.
