HOUSTON — The Texas Education Agency has ordered Houston ISD to suspend its search for a new superintendent. The timing of this is significant because HISD was just days away from announcing a sole finalist for the superintendent position. A conservator for HISD sent a letter to the Board of Trustees ordering them to stop their search until the state agency completes its special accreditation investigation into the District. TEA has been investigating HISD since January for allegations it violated the Texas Open Meetings Act. On Tuesday, local faith leaders met over the controversy, and they’re siding with the state. “The state of the board at present is not fitting for such an important and grave decision and process,” one officials said. Those leaders went on to say that this is an opportunity for the board and administration to improve the system. HISD has been led by interim superintendent Grenita Lathan since March 2018 after Richard Carranza abruptly resigned after accepting a position to become the chancellor of New York City public schools.
