TSD Superintendent Job Posting
JG Consulting has engaged with the Texas School for the Deaf (TSD) to recruit candidates to serve as the Superintendent.
TSD is seeking a highly visible leader who values the diverse Deaf community, is invested in bilingual education, is bilingual (fluent in both American Sign Language and English), and is committed to the continued viability of the organization. The superintendent must be a leader of integrity who promotes diversity, equity and inclusion among all stakeholders. Additionally, the organization’s leader shall be an authentic communicator who can listen and understand the expectations and needs expressed by the Governing Board, parents, students from birth to 22, teachers, staff, parents, and the deaf community.
Texas School for the Deaf is established as a state agency to provide a continuum of direct educational services to students, ages zero through twenty-one, who are deaf or hard of hearing and who may have multiple disabilities. TSD is also directed to serve as a statewide educational resource center on deafness, providing a variety of educational services to families, students, programs and professionals throughout the state working with persons who are deaf or hard of hearing. Texas Education Code §30.051-30.059. Students are admitted to TSD following a referral by a local school district, or a referral by a parent or adult student when the parent or adult student chooses TSD rather than the program offered locally. The TSD educational philosophy is grounded in the belief that all children who are deaf and hard of hearing deserve a quality language and communication-driven program that provides education together with a critical mass of communication, age, and cognitive peers, as well as language- proficient teachers and staff who communicate directly in the child’s language.
