Leander ISD Superintendent Dan Troxell, Ph.D., will stay on with the district through July 31 before leaving to become deputy executive director of the Texas Association of School Boards (TASB).


“I want to thank you for the last three years, it’s been absolutely incredible,” Troxell said. “This is a truly phenomenal place to be, and it’s a place that is cherished in my heart. With sincere and heartfelt gratitude, thank you for the last three years and I look forward to helping with the transition (to a new superintendent) in the next couple of months.”


“We appreciate you recognizing the challenges that come with changing leaders,” Board President Aaron Johnson said. “We appreciate the leadership you provided to the district and look forward to opportunities to express that appreciation.”


Trustees hope to have the new superintendent in place before the start of the new school year. LISD expects to follow a process and timeline similar to the 2016 selection process:

  • collect community feedback;
  • synthesize feedback to create an ideal candidate profile;
  • interview candidates and select a finalist; and
  • welcome a new superintendent.

Leander ISD will update the Superintendent webpage throughout the process and share updates on social media. Community feedback is expected to be solicited via focus groups and a community survey.
