ARLINGTON (CBSDFW.COM) - The Arlington Independent School District is expected to make it official on Thursday, appointing Dr. Marcelo Cavazos as the district’s new superintendent. Cavazos has been filling in on the job since former superintendent Jerry McCullough abruptly left back in June.

Cavazos already has a vision for the district and its students, one that he has been making a reality during the first half of this school year. He wants to make sure that students are always thinking about the future. “The focus of the school district is to ensure that students are inspired to learn, that we have effective leadership, and that we have an engaged community,” Cavazos said. “That’s the framework for success moving forward.”

When he is officially appointed, Cavazos will be at the helm of a school district where about half of the students come from low-income homes. They are considered ‘disadvantaged’ students because they qualify for school lunch programs. But, Cavazos said, he believes in the strategic plan adopted by the school district in August.

The goal of the strategic plan states that 100 percent of students will graduate on time, participate in an extracurricular activity, and excel after high school. The plan runs through 2015.

Cavazos is expected to be officially named superintendent at a school board meeting on Thursday night.
