Tyler – This evening the Keller ISD Board of Trustees named Tyler ISD Superintendent of Schools Dr. Randy Reid the sole finalist in their search for a new superintendent. Dr. Reid has served in his current position for five years.
“I am proud of the accomplishments we have made at Tyler ISD during my tenure as Superintendent,” Dr. Reid stated. “The teachers and staff here truly care about our students, and it is rewarding to work with such dedicated professionals.”
