Superintendent Search

Amid a period during which an unprecedented nine superintendents have announced plans to resign or retire from their roles as system leaders in North Texas school districts, DeSoto Independent School District is seeking its next leader with the support of the O’Hanlon, Demerath and Castillo Law Firm. 


The application and posting opened Wednesday, Jan. 25, 2022, via the law firm’s website, following the conclusion of a series of community meetings seeking feedback to develop the profile for the 10-school district located just 15 miles south of downtown Dallas. Serving 7,400 students from DeSoto, Glenn Heights and Ovilla, DeSoto ISD enjoys community support of academics, arts and athletics. With taxpayer support for upgraded facilities, technology and instruction, every school provides viable and relevant high-quality learning experiences supported by pyramids of intervention, enrichment and advancement.


DeSoto is known for its tight-knit, socially and civically engaged active community, beautiful parks and robust arts-focused programs which bring visual and performing arts alive for city residents. 


DeSoto is home to just over 55,000 people. The average home is valued at $225,000 and the average annual household income is roughly $80,000.


Serving students from early childhood through graduation, DeSoto ISD’s mission is to ensure students, without exception, learn and grow at their highest level. The District’s 2021 Be The Future Strategic Plan focuses on equity, access and excellence in an effort to provide a holistic and well-rounded educational experience.
