Magnolia ISD announced three new administrators at its June 8 school board meeting: a chief academic officer, executive director of teaching and learning, and an executive director of special services.

Brandon Garza, former principal of Magnolia West High School, will now be MISD’s first chief academic officer after the retirement of Assistant Superintendent of Curriculum Anita Hebert. MISD planned to slightly restructure its academic leadership, and Garza will help lead the instructional program, district officials said during the meeting.


Ben Petty, former associate principal at Magnolia High School, was named executive director of special services for the district, and Sarah Wright—the current director of teaching and learning at the Region 6 Service Center—will replace Garza as the executive director of teaching and learning, according to district information.
