Trustees hold off naming interim superintendent

August 21, 2013

Big Spring Independent School District trustees decided they're in no rush to name an interim superintendent.

After interviewing four candidates to temporarily replace departed Superintendent Steven Saldivar during a special meeting Tuesday evening, BSISD trustees announced they would put off hiring someone until later this month.

Saldivar, who has headed BSISD since 2008, announced his resignation earlier this month. He will become superintendent at Anthony ISD in far West Texas effective today.

After interviewing the candidates for the interim position Tuesday, trustees said they wanted to take some time before making a final decision.

“Due to the difficult nature of this decision and the fact the board needs to give more consideration to the matter, we've decided to postpone hiring an interim superintendent until our next meeting (Aug. 29),” Board President Irene Rodriguez said.

Rodriguez would not reveal the names of the people interviewed Tuesday, other than to say they were all retired school superintendents.

The Aug. 29 meeting will be held at the high school board room. No meeting time has been announced yet.
