Longview, Texas (Longview ISD) — Dr. James E. Wilcox announced this week that he intends to wrap up his service as Longview ISD’s superintendent by January 2015.
He plans to spend several of his final months here helping his replacement with the transition, Wilcox said.
The district’s Board of Trustees is expected to begin scheduling interviews with internal candidates – should they express interest in the job – in January 2014. Additional interviews would follow, if necessary, with a new superintendent hopefully named by mid-year, Wilcox said.
Wilcox came to Longview from Waxahachie ISD in April 2007. He retired from the district at the end of 2011 and was rehired to fill the role in February 2012.
