Thorndale superintendent heads to Llano
The Llano ISD hired Callahan as an assistant superintendent last week. The appointment is effective for the 2012-13 school year.
Thorndale trustees have accepted Callahan’s resignation and have asked him to begin gathering information for selecting his successor.
“I will not be making any recommendations,” Callahan said. “I will gather the information and present it to the entire board.”
Monday (April 16) has been set as the deadline to apply for the soon-to-be vacant position. The vacancy has been posted in various professional publications, with Regional Service Centers, with the Texas Association of School Administrators and on the TISD website.
Interviews are scheduled for April 23-27 and the TISD hopes to select the new superintendent in May.
Callahan, who has been TISD superintendent since 2009, said he is leaving the district “with mixes emotions.”
“We all know that we have an outstanding school system and that is due primarily to the students and staff at TISD.”
Callahan is returning to his native Texas Hill Country. He grew up in Mason, taught in the Mason ISD and was Mason High School Principal before coming to Thorndale three years ago.
He is the second South Milam County superintendent to accept another position this spring. Milano Supt. Lindy Robinson is leaving at the end of the school year to become superintendent in the Rotan ISD.
