TCISD Board accepts Brundrett’s resignation
TEXAS CITY – Dr. Bob Brundrett announced his resignation last night as Superintendent of Schools for the Texas City Independent School District. Since he has a current contract, an agreement has been reached which allows Dr. Brundrett the ability to pursue other interests and permits the Board to pursue hiring another superintendent.
On behalf of the entire District, the Board of Trustees expresses its sincere appreciation to Dr. Brundrett for his efforts while serving as superintendent of this great school district and its wonderful students, parents and administrators, and for the many achievements and accomplishments of the entire District team during Dr. Brundrett’s tenure as superintendent. Some of those highlights have been overseeing the construction of the new Kohfeldt, Levi Fry, Simpson Education Support Center and Texas City High Schools; improvement of state assessments, including the District being named a Recognized School District in 2010; enhancement of the District’s fine arts program that has won numerous awards and recognition; and implementation of an early exit incentive to help the District get through the state’s budget shortfall without having to lay off teachers.
Dr. Brundrett thanks the present and past Board of Trustees for providing him with the opportunity to serve in Texas City ISD. “A school district is measured by the commitment of the Board, staff and community to its children and their achievement,” he said. “This District is indeed so committed. I appreciate the staff and community for their support of TCISD’s programs and services during my term as Superintendent.”
Board President Hal Biery said, “Success requires hard work, dedication, leadership and vision. We are successful in Texas City ISD because of our teachers, principals, administrators, staff, students, parents and patrons who have all contributed to the District’s success. We wish Dr. Brundrett best wishes in his future endeavors.”
Dr. Brundrett’s resignation is effective on June 30, 2011. The Board will soon begin its search for a new superintendent as to not disrupt the District’s operations.
