The Grand Prairie ISD has a long legacy of dynamic leadership dating back more than 100 years. It is the intent of the Board of Trustees to conduct a thorough search for the next Superintendent of Grand Prairie ISD. The Board will take the lead on the search and is currently working to establish a timeline to accommodate community and staff meetings to gather input as we create a profile for our next leader. Please check this page for updates throughout the superintendent search.
