Friday, August 08, 2008
TEXAS CITY – TheTexas City Independent School District Board of Trustees on Thursday voted unanimously to name Dr. Robert C. (Bob) Brundrett as the lone finalist for Superintendent of Texas City ISD.
Brundrett, 52, currently serves in an assistant superintendent’s capacity as Instructional Leader for Middle Schools in Killeen ISD where he is responsible for 11 school campuses and approximately 8,000 students. He also has experience with design and implementation of long-range facilities planning and execution of new construction and renovations, which is beneficial to Texas City ISD’s bond projects.
“With his exceptional leadership background, including experience in a large, diverse district, Dr. Bob Brundrett is the ideal candidate to lead Texas City ISD to even greater levels of student success,” stated David Moss, TCISD School Board President.
“Texas City ISD has four recognized elementary schools and we are in great shape financially. We have a great staff in place and Dr. Brundrett is going to enhance our strengths and challenge us to keep striving for excellence in all areas,” Moss stated.
The state requires a 21-day waiting period before the lone finalist can sign a contract and become an official employee of the district. The TCISD Board of Trustees has called a special meeting on Friday, August 29 where Brundrett is expected to sign a contract. A reception will be held immediately following.
Brundrett’s career in education spans 29 years. He began his career as assistant band director in Santa Fe ISD for seven years. While in Santa Fe, he served as an Assistant Principal at Santa Fe Junior High and Santa Fe High School, as the Director of Special Education and then as Principal of Santa Fe Jr. High School for seven years. In 1996, Brundrett was hired as the State Coordinator for Texas Middle School Education for the Region 13 Education Service Center before he joined Spring ISD six years later as the Executive Director for Secondary School Improvement. He has been in his current position in Killeen ISD since 2005.
Brundrett, a Dickinson native, graduated from The University of Houston – University Park in 1979 and received his masters from the University of Houston – Clear Lake in 1986. He received his doctoral degree from Texas A&M University in 2004. Brundrett and his wife Lisa have two children, a daughter Avery, 11 and son, Riley, 4.
“Dr. Brundrett and his family will be coming home to Galveston County and living in Texas City,” stated Moss. “We are anxious to have the Brundrett family get involved in so many of the fun and exciting activities in our community.”
