Lubbock ISD Names Berhl Robertson, Jr. as Interim Superintendent

Lubbock ISD

Lubbock ISD has named an interim superintendent.

The Lubbock ISD Board of Trustees named Dr. Berhl Robertson, Jr., as interim superintendent for Lubbock ISD, pending the official resignation of Dr. Karen Garza.

Garza was named as the preferred candidate for superintendent of the Fairfax County Public Schools in Virginia last week. Official action by their school board is expected soon, and Garza’s official resignation is expected no later than April 25th.

Robertson said “I am honored and humbled to have the confidence of the board to serve this district as interim superintendent. Dr. Karen Garza has been an outstanding leader for Lubbock ISD and we will continue the momentum she has begun.”

“Dr. Robertson has been an integral part of the leadership team of Lubbock ISD and we are confident he will continue to move this district forward,” said Lubbock ISD Board of Trustees President Steve Massengale. “By naming Dr. Robertson, we will finish the year strong as we develop a budget for next year and our students complete state testing and other important matters.”

Robertson joined Lubbock ISD in 2009 as the chief administrative officer. He has been responsible for the business functions of the district, which includes 29,000 students and more than 3,500 employees. Robertson has previously served as superintendent of both Southland and Roosevelt ISDs.

He was also named as the Region 17 Superintendent of the year in 2003.
