The State of HISD

On Tuesday HISD Superintendent Dr. Abelardo Saavedra delivered his fifth annual state of the schools speech. 


It was an opportunity for him to outline his accomplishments while superintendent, and focus on his goals for the future.


It was likely his last opportunity to give a state of the schools speech as  superintendent of the state’s largest school district.

Dr. Saavedra announced that he plans to step down by March of 2010. He’ll leave earlier if the board hires his replacement before then.

Meanwhile, the speech drew an interesting mix of parents, teacher, and community leaders:

Attorney Bill King, Dr. Laura Murillo, Pastor D.Z. Cofield, HISD Trustees Paula Arnold, Harvin Moore and board President Larry Marshall, former HISD Spokesman Terry Abbott, and Mayoral Candidate Gene Locke.
