Coahoma ISD names new superintendent

November 23, 2011

COAHOMA — Coahoma Independent School District officials have tabbed Amy Jacobs of Marble Falls to be their next superintendent.

Jacobs was named the “lone finalist” for the superintendent position during the CISD trustee meeting Tuesday evening. She will replace Dr. Randy Brown, who resigned earlier this year to accept a similar position with Snyder ISD.

State law requires the CISD board to wait 21 days before formally offering the job to Jacobs.

Jacobs' hiring will culminate a months-long search which attracted more than 50 applicants, CISD Board President Brian Moore said.

Most of the increase can be attributed to enrollment spikes at SouthWest Collegiate Institute for the Deaf and the district's Lamesa campus; enrollment at the Big Spring and San Angelo campuses were fairly static compared to the previous fall.
