(Seguin) -- There reportedly is plenty of interest for the job of Seguin ISD Superintendent. That's according to Butch Felkner, division director for the Texas Association of School Boards Executive Search Services. Felkner says since TASB's selection as the school district's superintendent search firm, interest for the position has continued to pour in from across the country.
"There has been a lot of interest. I'm getting calls daily. In fact, I got a call today about the job here. They're wanting to come make a difference. They're wanting to work with the board and to move this district forward to the next level. That's exciting to me. That's what we're looking for. That's what this district is looking for," said Felkner.
Felkner says despite the headlines that might have surrounded the district's leadership this past year, the Seguin ISD is an attractive place to work and warrants all the attention that it is getting in its search for a new district leader.
"There's newspaper articles out and things like that, but my comment is that, that's no reflection of the district. That was just something that happened. Don't judge whether you're going to apply by the newspaper articles. I can tell you, it's a good district and we're looking for the right person. That may be you, it may be somebody else. I can guarantee if you don't apply, you won't get considered. There is a lot of interest out there and it's growing," said Felkner.
The Seguin ISD looks to replace former Superintendent Stetson Roane who in March signed a separation agreement after a sexual harassment complaint was filed against him, and after the school board voted not to reinstate him.
