The Pearland Independent School District Board recently approved three outstanding administrators to serve as principals at Carleston, Cockrell and Silvercrest elementaries. Combined, the new principals have nearly 50 years of experience in education.
During a special meeting on Tuesday, March 1, the Pearland ISD Board of Trustees approved a leave request proposed by Dr. John Kelly, superintendent. The board has not named an interim or acting superintendent, but by typical protocol, David Moody, deputy superintendent, will be fulfilling the superintendent responsibilities effective March 7 until a replacement for this position is named by the board. The board is actively involved in the search for a new superintendent, and is excited and optimistic about the future success of this district.
After 10½ years serving as the Superintendent of Pearland ISD, Dr. John Kelly has announced his intentions to retire this coming summer.
