On Tuesday, Dec. 9, the McKinney ISD Board of Trustees completed the district’s superintendent search process by formally approving a contract for Dr. Rick McDaniel as superintendent of McKinney ISD. McDaniel, who has formerly served as principal of McKinney Boyd High School and as assistant superintendent for student services, was chosen by the Board in November as the lone finalist for superintendent. State law requires school districts to wait 21 days before signing a contract with a final candidate.
The Board launched its search for a new superintendent in September when Dr. J.D. Kennedy, who has served as superintendent for the past five years, announced his plan to retire at the end of December. After interviewing six candidates narrowed from an original pool of 80 applicants, the Board found Kennedy’s successor among the leadership already in place in MISD.

McKinney ISD will hold informational parent meetings to discuss the upcoming One 2 the World instructional initiative that will issue a MacBook Air laptop to each 2014-15 McKinney ISD high school freshman beginning in January 2015. Each meeting will cover vital information you’ll need to know about the program and answer questions you might have about One 2 the World. Because the same information will be presented during each meeting, it is not necessary to attend more than one.
