HISD Board Meets Thursday
The Houston Independent School Board will meet Thursday to finalize the hiring of Dr. Terry Grier as superintendent of HISD schools.
The board picked Grier, who is superintendent of the San Diego Unified School District, as the finalist for the HISD post on August 20. State law required a 21-day waiting period before the board of trustees could make their final decision.
Grier will replace Melinda Garrett, who has been serving as interim superintendent of HISD since Dr. Abelardo Saeevedra’s August 31 resignation.
