After six years of service to the Sealy Independent School District community and 35 years in public education, Sheryl Moore announced Jan. 24 she will retire on June 30.
“I have loved my time here in Sealy,” she said. “The school board, past and present, has been so supportive and it has been a genuine pleasure to work alongside them. We have accomplished a lot of good things in the past six years, and I know they will continue the mission.
“The Sealy ISD faculty and staff are amazing, hard-working, committed people. I have tremendous respect for the work that they do. This community has been wonderful to me, and I am grateful to have been given the opportunity to serve it.”
The board of trustees will begin discussions about the superintendent search at a special board meeting on Feb. 3.
Speaking on behalf of the board of trustees, Board President Ryan Reichardt praised the superintendent for her ability to build a strong culture of professional learning within the district as well as restore trust and support within the community.
“On behalf of the board, we highly value the academic growth, facility improvements and community support established in our school system under Superintendent Sheryl Moore’s leadership,” he said. “During her tenure, she has been a tireless visionary for Sealy ISD who pushed us to think globally and reestablish our priorities to create unique first class goals for Sealy ISD.
“Along with the board, she has used those goals to create a culture focused on ensuring all students of Sealy ISD will be prepared to positively impact the world. We look forward to Mrs. Moore remaining a member of the Sealy community and continuing to support our future endeavors.”
