MISD Superintendent Dr. J.D. Kennedy
Announces Plans to Retire

Dear McKinney ISD Family,

All good things at some point in time must come to an end. I have served the schoolchildren of Texas for over 39 years and it is time for me to begin a new chapter in my life. The past five years here in McKinney have been amazing. I will always cherish our accomplishments and the friends I have made here in McKinney.

Academically, we have kept our focus on designing engaging work for students, and educating the whole child. We have expanded our career and technology programs, developed strong partnerships with businesses and the community and improved in our participation and performance on AP exams. It is not by accident that the U.S. News and World Report ranked all three of our high schools in the top three percent of high schools nationwide.

At the elementary and middle school level we have maintained a strong focus on designing engaging work for students. More than any time I have been here, we are working on a single unified focus. It is my prayer and hope that this will continue after I am gone. With your dedication that will happen.

This was indeed a bittersweet decision for me. It has always been my goal as an administrator to leave a place in better shape than it was. Through the collective efforts of our great staff, board members, and the community I feel confident we have accomplished this goal. We have met our challenges successfully over the past five years. This is a quality school district and will remain so due to what you do on a day-to-day basis. The level of professionalism and dedication here is unmatched. This school district is viewed as a leader among school districts and will remain so if we stay unified in the course that we have taken and you continue your focus, hard work, and dedication.

Thank you for providing me a great way to end my career in education.

With High Regards,
J.D. Kennedy
McKinney Independent School District
