KELLER (CBSDFW.COM) – The Keller Independent School District’s Board of Trustees unanimously approved Dr. Randy Reid as the new superintendent Thursday.

Reid was named as the lone finalist for the position during a special meeting on July 2. The state requires a 21 day waiting period before a superintendent can be officially hired.

“It’s an honor to have this opportunity in Keller ISD,” Dr. Randy Reid said. “This is an outstanding district and community, and I’m looking forward to doing my part to add to its legacy of providing a world-class education for all students.”

Reid has served as superintendent of Tyler ISD since 2007 and was superintendent of Celina ISD two years prior. He also served as the assistant superintendent of Richardson ISD from 2000-2005.

“We are confident we found the right person for the job,” KISD Board of Trustees President Kevin Stevenson said. “Dr. Reid has the experience and leadership qualities necessary to continue building on Keller ISD’s reputation of providing exceptional learning opportunities.”

Dr. Reid and his wife Vickie have three sons, two of which are currently teachers in the Dallas area, with the youngest a student at Baylor University.
