Crosby ISD begins superintendent search


CROSBY—The Crosby ISD Board of Trustees has announced a timeline for finding a new district superintendent. Mike Joseph is retiring from the post. According to the timeline, the district will accept applications until April 5. On April 15, the applicants will be narrowed down to a field of semifinalists. The number has not been determined.

These semifinalists will be interviewed on April 21 and 22. On 28 and 29, the board will recall some of them for a second interview. April 30-May has been designated a time for “home district visits.”

The board is expected to announce the sole finalist for the position after the 29th. After completing the mandatory waiting period, the new superintendent is expected to be formally chosen on May 24. The new superintendent will then begin his duties on July 1.

At the Feb. 15th Crosby ISD Trustee meeting, Roseanne Joseph’s notice to retire after this school year was posted. Upon return from Austin on Feb. 20, Mike Joseph confirmed that he was going to retire in late June. In 2007 Board members when hiring asked him for at least two years. Joseph said he would hold his position “at least a couple of years,” when he took over from Don Hendrix. He has held the post for three years.
