Janis Jordan began as Lake Travis ISD’s new assistant superintendent for curriculum and instruction
July 27.


The Houston native replaces former Becky Burnett who relocated to Waco to serve as principal of Clifton High School, according to a news release.


“This was a very important decision for us,” Superintendent Brad Lancaster said.  “I want to thank the members of the interview committee for their outstanding help through this process—Dr. Chris Allen, Kimberly Brents, Angela Frankhouser, Holly Morris-Kuentz and Liz Sims.”


The committee received roughly 70 applications for the position and pursued two rounds of interviews, the release said.


Jordan has more than 24 years of public education experience and a doctorate of education degree in curriculum and instruction from the University of Houston.


Most recently she served as assistant superintendent for curriculum and instruction in Corpus Christi ISD.


The assistant superintendent for curriculum and instruction oversees the instructional programs, technology services, staff development, special education services and other LTISD programs.
