Brad Hunt has been named the lone finalist for the Coppell ISD (CISD) Superintendent position, according to a post announced on the CISD website.
Prior to the announcement of the nomination, many members of the community expressed support for him.
One member of the community created an online petition for citizens to sign in support of Hunt obtaining the position. The petition has garnered 375 signatures.
“Brad Hunt would make an excellent Superintendent for Coppell ISD,” Kori Stolar, who wrote in a comment on the petition, said. “He is a proven leader by example and has an impeccable reputation both personally and professionally. We would be lucky to have him in the top position here in Coppell.”
It took two weeks for the CISD Board of Trustees to interview all of the candidates for the new position.
Hunt has had an extensive history in CISD, stemming back from 1990, where he taught special education, world geography and American government at Coppell High School (CHS).
Afterward, he became Coppell Middle School West’s assistant principal. Hunt then became a principal for a Carroll ISD middle school. Following that, Hunt returned to CISD and was the principal at CHS from 2006 to 2011.
Up until this point, he has been the Assistant Superintendent for Administrative Services.
Many parents and students have expressed gratitude on various social media sites since he has been announced lone finalist.
There must be a period of 21 days after lone finalist is announced, before the Board is authorized to officially announce the Superintendent. That rule is mandatory from the State of Texas.
On August 1, Hunt will be able to officially take the position as Superintendent of Coppell ISD.
