Frequently Asked Questions

The goal of the Board of Trustees is to connect with outstanding educators to find the best Superintendent candidate for Comal ISD. The Board will directly review all applications and identify desirable candidates for further review. To help identify a superintendent with the right strengths and priorities, the Board is conducting a survey with the community to better understand what stakeholders want to see in and from Comal ISD’s next leader. Comal stakeholders can provide input into the process through the community survey.
 
In addition, a community meeting will be held at Smithson Valley High School on Wednesday, Aug. 10, from 6-7 p.m.

The Comal ISD Board of Trustees is responsible for selecting and hiring the Superintendent for Comal ISD. After desirable candidates are identified and interviewed, the Board will name a selected candidate as the lone finalist, and after 21 days, can formally hire the next Superintendent.
The position will be posted on the Comal ISD website, marketed to appropriate education industry locations across the Internet, and delivered directly to candidates that fit CISD’s profile as developed with stakeholder input.
While the State of Texas requires some minimum requirements for all Superintendents, Comal ISD Trustees will determine the minimum qualifications based on feedback it receives from stakeholders via the survey available.
Please direct any qualified candidates to complete the Comal ISD Superintendent application. 
Because virtually all qualified candidates will currently be employed by a school district, it is standard practice for the identity of Superintendent candidates to not be made public, and this allows school districts seeking a Superintendent to attract a wider range of qualified candidates.
