The Stafford MSD Board of Trustees has named Lawrence Hindt as its Lone Finalist for the position of Superintendent of Stafford schools. During a special called meeting Monday night, the board voted 5-2 to select him as the finalist for the position and begin the 21 day legally required period to negotiate his contract. Hindt is currently Assistant Superintendent for Middle Schools in Fort Bend ISD.
“The SMSD Board of Trustees is very pleased with the process used to determine SMSD’s candidate for Lone Finalist,” said Board President Cindy Hoelscher. Hindt said, “I am excited to be here and appreciate the vote of confidence. I look forward to sharing my knowledge and experience with the district, but most of all I look forward to walking the halls and working with the kids. I want our students to have an instructionally sound education.”
