The Cuero Independent School District (ISD) Board of Trustees, at its 2/23/2017 meeting, named Dr. Micah Dyer, of Lovelady ISD, as finalist for superintendent. By law, the Board must now wait 21 days before voting to hire Dyer. Dyer is slated to replace Interim Superintendent Dr. Ben Colwell.
The Board has followed a lengthy process in determining the finalist. In November, the Board hired Texas Association of School Boards (TASB) Executive Search Services to direct the search. TASB consultants surveyed staff and community groups to determine desired characteristics of the new superintendent. The profile developed from the surveys was the yardstick used by the Board and consultants in evaluating the applicants for the position.
The Board selected six applicants for initial interviews. Three applicants were invited back for a second interview. The Board is scheduled to vote to offer a contract to Dyer at its regular monthly board meeting later in March.
Dyer has served as superintendent in Lovelady ISD since 2010; he oversees the business operations of the 550-student district.
