  • Superintendent Input Meeting Tomorrow

    Posted by Kirk Wrinkle at 2/21/2017 6:00:00 PM

    Board seeks your input for next Superintendent of Schools


    The Pflugerville ISD Board of Trustees has begun the search for the next Superintendent of Schools. 

    The position has been posted and will stay open for applications until March 16. Trustees will review all applications and make selections for candidates to interview during the last part of March. By early April, the Board will begin the interview process, with a final selection of a lone finalist later in April. There is a state-mandated, 21-day waiting period after naming a lone finalist before the Board can officially execute a contract. The Board hopes that the new Superintendent will enter the district on a full-time basis sometime in early summer.

    It is very important to the Board that staff and community have the opportunity to provide feedback on what qualities and characteristics that it would like to see in the next Superintendent. With that in mind, there will be an open community forum on tomorrow, Wednesday,  February 22, from 4:30-7:30 p.m. in the PfISD Rock Gym (immediately next door to Timmerman Elementary at 700 West Pecan St. in Pflugerville), where the community can provide input into the selection process. Staff will be on hand to take comments that will be provided to the Board of Trustees to assist them in the search process.

    The forum will have a come-and-go format to provide flexibility for community members who wish to participate. In addition, for those who cannot attend the forum or wish to provide online input, there is an online survey opportunity to provide input to the process as well. Visit the PfISD website (PfISD.net) beginning Friday, February 17, and click the link that says “Superintendent Search.” All input will be shared with the Board.

    Parents and Guardians:

    There are times when I really enjoy my job!  Yesterday was one of those days.  We had a surprise celebration for Andrea Orji in her Physics class to congratulate her on being named a National Merit Finalist!  We shared cake with the class and had a big congratulatory session.  Way to go, Andrea!!!

    We had another student honored this week.  We received notification that Khala Hanson was a state level finalist for the Prudential Spirit of Community Award, a program that honors student volunteers throughout the US.  Although Khala did not receive the State award, we are proud of her for being honored as a finalist and for all she does for PHS and the Pflugerville community.  We are proud of you!

    Keeping the pride thing going...the boys basketball team defeated Hendrickson HS on Tuesday night to garner the district championship which equaled the same feat the girls basketball team accomplished last week.  The boys are "to be announced" on their Bi-District game.  There is a play-in game tonight between Manor and San Marcos to determine our opponent.

    The girls basketball team took their second playoff win last night in Brenham defeating a scrappy Spring HS 61-40.  There were many Panther fans who made the drive and made a lot of noise at the game.  The Panthers next game is also TBA.  They play the winner of the Austin Bowie-Klein Collins game which will be played in Bryan tonight.  We will get the information out as soon as it becomes available.  GO PANTHER BASKETBALL TEAMS!

     Out of soap!  Until next week...

A student whose telecommunications device is seen, heard or used during the school day without teacher permission shall have the device confiscated. The parent may pick up the confiscated telecommunications device from the principal’s office the following business day. If a second offense occurs a $15 handling fee will be charged.
