LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

From Lubbock ISD:

At a special called meeting, the Lubbock ISD Board of Trustees named the current chief administrative officer, Dr. Berhl Robertson, Jr., as interim superintendent for Lubbock ISD, pending receipt of the official resignation of Dr. Karen Garza, which is expected no later than April 25. Last week, Garza was named the preferred candidate for the superintendency of the Fairfax County Public Schools and official action by that board is expected in the coming days.

In taking action on the appointment of Robertson, Lubbock ISD Board of Trustees President Steve Massengale said, "Dr. Robertson has been an integral part of the leadership team of Lubbock ISD and we are confident he will continue to move this district forward. By naming Dr. Robertson, we will finish the year strong as we develop a budget for next year and our students complete state testing and other important matters." "Having Dr. Robertson take leadership of the district will give us plenty of time to determine our next steps in this process," Massengale added.

After being named to the position, Robertson said, "I am honored and humbled to have the confidence of the board to serve this district as interim superintendent. Dr. Karen Garza has been an outstanding leader for Lubbock ISD and we will continue the momentum she has begun."

Robertson joined Lubbock ISD in 2009 as the Chief Administrative Officer and has been responsible for the business operating functions of the district of 29,000 students and more than 3,500 employees. He has previous experience as a superintendent having served in that capacity in both Southland ISD and Roosevelt ISD. He was selected as the Region 17 Superintendent of the Year in 2003 and has served in leadership positions with several professional education associations.
