The Iraan-Sheffield ISD Board of Trustees, at its April 22, 2020 meeting, named Dr. Tracy Canter, currently from Ector County ISD, as finalist for superintendent. By law, the Board must now wait 21 days before voting to hire Dr. Canter to be the new superintendent for Iraan-Sheffield ISD. Canter is slated to replace out-going Superintendent Michael Meek.
The Board has followed a lengthy process in determining the finalist. In February, the Board hired Texas Association of School Boards (TASB) Executive Search Services to direct the search. A Leadership Profile Assessment questionnaire appeared on the Iraan-Sheffield ISD website. The results of the questionnaire was the yardstick used by the Board and consultants in evaluating the applicants for the position.
The Board selected seven (7) applicants for the initial interview and then three (3) applicants were invited back for a second interview. The Board is scheduled to vote to offer a contract to Canter on May 14, 2020. Canter has served as the Executive Director of Special Services in Ector County ISD since July 2015.
