Superintendent announces area supervisors

Aug. 23, 2018 

Superintendent of Schools Dr. Doug Killian recently announced the creation of four area supervisor positions, in an effort to improve administrative performance.

Area supervisors now oversee each of the district’s high school feeder patterns. There were formerly only two such positions – over elementary and secondary education.

Doing so has already shown to have improved efficiencies, said Dr. Killian.

“This helps to better provide direct support and coaching for principals and their campuses,” he noted, “as well as more quickly meeting the needs of parents and students.”

Kettisha Jones, who oversaw 21 campuses as PfISD assistant superintendent of elementary education, now oversees the Pflugerville High School feeder pattern as area assistant superintendent of the Panther Team. 

John O’Hare, former PfISD curriculum and instruction executive director, administers the Hendrickson High School feeder pattern as area executive director of the Hawk Team.

The Connally High School feeder pattern is headed by Marivel Sedillo, most recently federal programs and innovation executive director for Manor ISD. Sedillo has 23 years in education, 19 of those in district administrative roles.

Brian Dawson, formerly a middle school principal in Georgetown ISD, brings more than 25 years of experience in education as area executive director of the Weiss Wolf Team. He’s spent 18 years in an administrative capacity.

The four area supervisor positions were created out of existing administrative positions.

Dr. Troy Galow, former PfISD deputy superintendent, now serves as district chief of staff. 

Additionally, Tamra Spence was promoted to district communications officer.

The rest of the district’s Cabinet leadership team includes:

  • Chief Operating Officer Ed Ramos
  • Chief Human Resources Officer Willie Watson
  • Chief Technology Officer Victor Valdez
  • Chief Academic and Innovation Officer Brandy Baker

The reorganization was in place at the start of the 2018-19 school year.
