Lubbock ISD Superintendent Karen Garza Resigns

Rex Andrew,

Lubbock Independent School District’s superintendent has resigned.

Dr. Karen Garza has announced that she has accepted the superintendency of the Fairfax County Schools in Fairfax, Virginia.

The Fairfax County School Board unanimously selected Garza as their preferred candidate for superintendent of the 181,000 student district.

The Fairfax County School District has almost 200 schools and an annual budget of more than $2 billion.

Garza sent an email to LISD employees saying “I thank the district leadership, the Lubbock ISD teachers, and all other Lubbock ISD staff for their support over the last four years. We have asked a lot of you as we implemented an aggressive, but intentional plan to improve student achievement and you have risen to the occasion through your very hard work and extraordinary dedication.”

Lubbock ISD Board of Trustees President Steve Massengale commented, saying “We are very disappointed for Lubbock ISD to lose Karen Garza; however, we are proud of what we’ve accomplished under her leadership. She is a tireless champion for children and has both the vision and leadership skills to be a catalyst for lasting change. The board joins me in wishing Karen and Louis all the best in the future.”

Massengale says that he anticipates the board will name an interim superintendent quickly, and then will consider their options.
