KILLEEN, Texas (KWTX) - The Killeen Independent School District has allocated $40,000 to pay Austin-based JG Consulting to help it find a new superintendent after Dr. John Craft announced he planned to leave to school district.

The district will pay agency in two installments. The first installment is up to $20,000 no later than 30 business days after the contract was approved and the second installment is another $20,000 after the new superintendent is hired and contracted.

The Killeen ISD Board of Trustees named KISD Deputy Superintendent of Operations Megan Bradley as the Interim Superintendent in a special meeting Mar. 6.

“At a Regular Board Meeting on March 7, the Killeen ISD Board of Trustees selected JG Consulting to serve as the firm to lead the Superintendent search process. The Killeen ISD Board is committed to a transparent process that encourages feedback from everyone in the community,” said the school district on its website.

The search comes following the announced by Northside ISD in the San Antonio area that it has selected Craft as the lone finalist for its leadership role.

Craft joined Killeen ISD as the deputy superintendent in 2012 and was named superintendent of schools in January 2015.
