A school district based out of an area university has hired a new superintendent.

Texas Tech University Independent School District announced the appointment of Jim Taliaferro as its superintendent.

Dr. Taliaferro earned a bachelor’s degree and master of music education from Wichita State University, followed by a master’s degree in education from West Texas State University and a doctorate from Texas Tech.

He served as superintendent of Slaton ISD for seven years, and his district was designated as a Texas Education Agency Recognized district in 2009 and 2010, and Slaton High was named as a 2008 U.S. Department of Education Blue Ribbon high School.

Taliaferro retired from Slaton ISD in January.

“We are certain his knowledge, reputation, and respect within the state of Texas will be of great benefit to our future growth,” said Sam Oswald, TTUISD executive director.

TTUISD offers supplemental and home school curriculum through distance education. A press release states that the ISD has more than 2,900 full-time students and 8,530 supplemental students.
