Eanes ISD has named Dr. Tom Leonard as the lone finalist to take the place of retiring superintendent Dr. Nola Wellman.
Eanes ISD Board President Rob Hargett calls Dr. Leonard “a successful, student-centered, seasoned superintendent in a high-performing district, roughly the size and structure of Eanes ISD.”
Dr. Leonard served as superintendent of the Barrington 220 district in Illinois for the past seven years and has more than 20 years of experience working in education.
State law requires a 21-day waiting period after a finalist is announced before a contract can be signed. The final vote will take place on April 30 during the regular board meeting. If approved, Dr. Leonard will start work on July 1, 2014.
