Goose Creek CISD seeks community input

Carl Burg

BAYTOWN — The Goose Creek CISD Board of Trustees has employed the Texas Association of School Board (TASB) to assist with the search for a new superintendent to replace Dr. Barbara Sultis who retired in January.

The Goose Creek Board of Trustees named Dr. Toby York, current Deputy Superintendent for Personnel and Student Services, interim superintendent while district officials search for a permanent superintendent.

The Board of Trustees is now requesting that the public be involved in developing the qualifications and characteristics for the person the Board should seek to become the district1s new superintendent.

“Hiring a new superintendent for our district is the most important thing that I have been involved in as a trustee for the last five years,” said Board President Carl Burg.

“Obtaining input from the community on what they think is important for the Board to consider when it comes to the personal and professional characteristics for that new superintendent should help provide community support for the person the Board hires in May. We want as many people as possible who can provide input to do so via the community sessions or through the link on the district web site,” he added.

Community involvement meetings will be held on March 23 and March 24 between the search consultant and the community members to discuss the desired characteristics of the new superintendent.

Both meetings will be held at the Administration Building Board Room, 4544 I-10 East at 6 p.m.

The Goose Creek Board president encourages all members of the community, those who live or work in the Goose Creek CISD boundaries, to attend and give the consultant their thoughts and insights.

Should anyone not being able to attend one of the community meetings, there is an online questionnaire ( to post comments.
