During a special board meeting on Tuesday evening, the Montgomery ISD Board of Trustees formally accepted the resignation of Superintendent Dr. Heath Morrison and announced the appointment of an interim superintendent. Morrison’s last day in the district will be July 31.

Montgomery ISD Assistant Superintendent of Student Services & Innovation Dr. Amy Busby was appointed as interim superintendent while the Board initiates and conducts a search for a permanent superintendent. On July 12, Morrison announced his plans to resign from his position to lead a national organization focused on public education. Busby will officially assume the role of interim superintendent on August 1.

“Our Board is taking the process of selecting our next superintendent very seriously, and as we had discussions about how to conduct the search, we all agreed it was important for us to identify an interim that will maintain stability within the district and keep us moving in the right direction,” Board President Laurie Turner said. “We believe Dr. Busby’s tenure with the district and experience as part of Dr. Morrison’s senior leadership team makes her exceptionally qualified to lead MISD as our interim superintendent as we search for the best long-term fit for this role. She has an incredible work ethic and has developed strong professional relationships with employees across the district, which will be tremendously beneficial as we work to find the next leader for MISD.”

Dr. Busby is entering her 15th year in Montgomery ISD where she has served in several leadership roles. As the Assistant Superintendent of Student Services and Innovation, she oversees multiple departments including Specialized Learning, PEIMS, Technology and Community Services. She has previously served as the Director of Special Programs, Director of Instructional Technology, and Principal of Montgomery Middle School.

“I am honored to serve Montgomery ISD as Interim Superintendent,” Busby said. “I am committed to ensuring the district continues to thrive and move in the right direction. In this community, we are blessed with amazing educators, fantastic students and supportive families. I am excited to lead the district during this time of transition and look forward to an excellent year in Montgomery ISD.”

During the meeting, the Board also selected the highly respected firm Thompson & Horton to lead the superintendent search process. Information on the superintendent search process will be shared with the public in the near future.
