The Texas Education Agency (TEA) today announced the appointment of a seven-member Board of Managers and a new superintendent to oversee the operations of the La Joya Independent School District (LJISD) as a result of a TEA investigation. Information on the Board of Managers selection process and intervention history, including TEA’s role in the district moving forward is available on the agency’s La Joya ISD Board of Managers webpage. On May 9, 2023, TEA’s Special Investigations Unit (SIU) issued a final report recommending the appointment of a Board of Managers for La Joya ISD which was appealed by the district. The new superintendent is Dr. Marcy Sorenson, the former Assistant Superintendent of Teaching and Learning and Chief Academic Officer in the Fort Worth Independent School District.
