Katy ISD Board Appoints Acting Superintendent

Ken Gregorski.

During Katy ISD’s regular board meeting, Trustees voted to appoint Deputy Superintendent Ken Gregorski as acting superintendent effective December 1st, until a permanent district leader is identified.  Superintendent Lance Hindt will continue to work closely with Gregorski and the Board until his retirement this January.

“My fellow Trustees and I believe that Katy ISD needs a leader who will continue to support the high quality leadership within, maintain our standard of student excellence and advance the groundwork that has already been laid,” said Board President Courtney Doyle.

Under Hindt’s leadership, Katy ISD schools have taken the top spots in a number of regional, state and national rankings, graduation rates continue to trend upward each year and students have consistently outperformed their peers across the state. During Hindt’s tenure, the district also implemented its first ever strategic plan and developed and passed a $609 million schools bond.

Gregorski has 26 years of experience in public education, which includes roles as a classroom teacher, assistant principal, principal, assistant superintendent and deputy superintendent.

The Katy ISD Board of Trustees continues to review and discuss options for its superintendent search. As this is the most important decision a school board makes, no definitive timetable has been set for the process at this time.
