A new principal may be hired soon for the Killeen Independent School District’s Career Center.
The vacant position was posted on the KISD website on Oct. 26, with an additional posting on the Indeed.com website Oct. 30.
The Career Center has over 90 employees. About 1,705 students participate in a variety of programs, including 217 who stay at the Career Center for the full school day, according to Nancy Duran, KISD’s executive director of Career and Technology Education. The rest of the students commute to the Career Center from their home high school campuses.
The Career and Technology Education coordinator at the Career Center left KISD to accept a position with another school district, Duran said.
“Due to our growth at the Career Center, the CTE coordinator position was changed to a principal position,” she said.
Applicants for the principal position must have a master’s degree, along with a principal or mid-management certificate. The candidate should have at least three years of teaching experience, and a minimum of two years in instructional leadership roles, according to the job posting on the KISD website.
“Applicants must have completed a Principal Insight survey with Gallup to be considered for the position,” per the job posting.
The pay range for the position is between $84,000 and $117,850, “negotiable based on experience,” the job posting reads.
A “generous flexible benefits package” is also provided.
The posting closes on Wednesday, but the vacancy remains open until filled, according to the KISD job posting.
