On Tuesday, Robert Muller was the Killeen Independent School District's deputy superintendent, responsible for the operation of the district and the logistics functions associated with that task. On Wednesday, Muller, the newly appointed interim superintendent, graciously accepted his new role and responsibility for running the entire district during a press conference.
Muller wouldn't comment on potential candidates for the position of superintendent or the selection process by which that individual will be chosen, saying that those are all "board of trustees' decisions."
He did say that there is no timeline currently associated with the selection process. It might take several months or until the start of the next academic year to appoint a new district superintendent.
Muller also didn't comment on whether the board of trustees will consider him for the position of superintendent.
"That's a board decision," he said.
Muller said that the "strength of the district is in its people," and that quality teachers and administrators will continue to provide quality instruction to students every day.
