TYLER – The Tyler Independent School District Board of Trustees unanimously named Gary Mooring, current Tyler ISD Interim Superintendent, as the lone finalist for the District’s superintendent position. The lone finalist announcement was made at a Special Board Meeting Wednesday. The District is required to wait 21 days before officially hiring the lone finalist. “I am honored to be named the lone finalist for the superintendent position,” Mooring said. “I am committed to Tyler ISD, and to this community. I will continue facing challenges head-on while working closely with the Board and District staff to make decisions that uphold our Core Beliefs.” Mooring joined Tyler ISD as interim superintendent in August when former Superintendent Dr. Randy Reid accepted the superintendent position with Keller ISD.
“Mr. Mooring is an outstanding leader who has brought a wealth of experience to Tyler ISD,” Michelle Carr, Tyler ISD Board of Trustees President, said. “We look forward to continuing to work closely with Mr. Mooring as we strive to reach our goal of being recognized as a premier school district in the state and nation.”
