Provided by Lubbock ISD

At a special called meeting today, the Lubbock ISD Board of Trustees voted unanimously to name Dr. Berhl Robertson, Jr., currently the interim superintendent, as the lone finalist for superintendent of Lubbock ISD. A 21-day waiting period is required before the lone finalist can be named as the superintendent. Robertson has served the district as the chief administrative officer since 2009.

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 fully confident of his ability to continue to move this district forward."

Robertson joined Lubbock ISD in 2009 as the Chief Administrative Officer and has been responsible for the business operations of the district of 29,000 students and more than 3,500 employees. Among his duties has been oversight of the $198 million bond approved by voters in 2010. Robertson is considered an expert in school finance and is well-respected among his peers in the education community. 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.
