Superintendent Search

After Superintendent Dr. Jim Vaszauskas announced he will retire, effective Feb. 5, 2020, the Mansfield ISD Board of Trustees began searching for a visionary and experienced educational leader to continue the district’s tradition of excellence as superintendent of schools.

On Nov. 19, the school board announced that Dr. Kimberley Cantu, currently the district's deputy superintendent, has been named the lone superintendent finalist. According to state law, the school board must wait 21 days before offering her a contract.

The district was committed to making this superintendent search a thorough and transparent one. The timeline below provides resources about the superintendent search and highlights the milestones.

This page will be updated as new information becomes available.
