Ledbetter Named as Carroll ISD Lone Finalist; MISD Board’s Next Steps

Earlier today, Carroll Independent School District announced Dr. Lane Ledbetter as the Lone Finalist for Superintendent. The CISD Board of Trustees held its meeting this morning; therefore, by law, Dr. Ledbetter has a 21-day waiting period before he could possibly start. The official start date at CISD has not yet been determined. 

“Thank you to Midlothian ISD for making me feel at home for the past five years,” Dr. Lane Ledbetter said. “I will forever be grateful for time in this amazing district and working with the best educators in Texas. I will forever always be #MISDProud.”

With this appointment, the Midlothian ISD Board of Trustees will soon begin discussing next steps for overseeing the district in December. 

“On behalf of the Board of Trustees, I congratulate Dr. Ledbetter on his new appointment,” Carl Smith, MISD Board President, said. “Dr. Ledbetter was one of the best superintendents we could have hired for our district and I know we have big shoes to fill as we embark on a superintendent search this school year.”

After the Thanksgiving Break at their December 1 workshop, the Board of Trustees will meet to discuss appointing an interim superintendent to begin by an agreed-upon date and lead throughout a Superintendent Search process. The Board will also discuss selecting a Superintendent search firm during the workshop.

“As a Board, we are committed to keeping our community updated on the process,” Smith said. “We will have more details about our next steps after the Thanksgiving break. We will be focused on a smooth transition during this process. Once again, congratulations to Dr. Ledbetter and his family.”
