Lamar CISD Superintendent Search

Update – At a Special Board Meeting on Tuesday, April 6, the Lamar CISD Board of Trustees announced Dr. Roosevelt Nivens as the "lone finalist" to serve as the district's next superintendent. The board's announcement follows an extensive, nationwide search lasting several months. The search process included gathering input from community stakeholders, which was used to develop a candidate profile that was nationally advertised. Read more about Dr. Nivens here.

After 20 successful years in the District, Lamar CISD Superintendent Dr. Thomas Randle announced his retirement on Oct. 15, 2020. Read the full announcement here.

The Lamar CISD Board of Trustees has selected JG Consulting to serve as the firm to lead the superintendent search process.
