Michael Cardona named SMCISD Superintendent

By David Short - Business Editor

Michael Cardona became the unanimous choice of SMCISD trustees as the lone finalist for superintendent in a special called meeting last night.

Cardona, who is currently chief school officer for the Houston ISD, has to wait the required 21 days per state law before he can officially begin here but it could be slightly longer depending upon when Houston ISD releases him.  In the meantime, Karen Griffith, assistant superintendent of business and support, will assume the role of interim superintendent of the SMCISD effective immediately.
