Gordon Butler, McKinney ISD Assistant Superintendent of Strategic Processes and Community Engagement

McKinney, Texas – A familiar face is returning to McKinney ISD. Gordon Butler, currently the Chief Executive Officer for the Boys & Girls Clubs of Austin, will assume the new role of MISD’s Assistant Superintendent of Strategic Processes and Community Engagement. Butler formerly served in MISD as an assistant principal, central office administrator and principal of McKinney High School.

“Mr. Butler brings to McKinney a wealth of experience in public education, including experience in Community Engagement, Strategic Planning, and Safety & Security,” said MISD Superintendent Shawn Pratt. “During his previous time with McKinney ISD, Mr. Butler established quality relationships and an excellent reputation, and we are thrilled to have him back with us.”

As Assistant Superintendent of Strategic Processes and Community Engagement, Butler will oversee the strategic planning process for MISD by facilitating community engagement opportunities that will help form and drive the broader goals of the district.

Prior to his current role as CEO of the Boys & Girls Club, Butler served as the Assistant Superintendent of Staff and Student Services in Carroll ISD and served as principal of Lake Travis High School in Austin for five years.

He began his career in education as a fifth- and sixth-grade language arts and social studies teacher in the Dallas Independent School District. After serving a year in East Boston, Massachusetts, as a sixth- and eighth-grade social studies teacher, Butler returned to Texas where he continued teaching and eventually began his administrative career.

After four years as an assistant principal, Butler moved to MISD’s central office to serve as Chief Program Evaluation Officer, before becoming principal at McKinney High School.

“I am thrilled at the opportunity to come home to McKinney and support the vision that the Board and Superintendent Pratt have set for this amazing district,” said Butler. “This is a new opportunity to engage with our community and the staff of McKinney ISD in supporting the learning outcomes for all students.”

Butler earned his bachelor’s degree in journalism/public relations from the University of Texas at Arlington and his master’s degree in educational administration from Texas A&M University–Commerce. He is currently pursuing a doctorate in educational administration from the University of Texas.
