AUSTIN (KXAN) — The Austin school board has selected Ray and Associates to search for a new superintendent.

The board approved the contract Wednesday that will cost an estimated $41,000. That expense though does not include advertising or candidate expenses for interviews.

The board will work with the firm on a timeline for the new superintendent, which is expected to take about a year.

Dr. Paul Cruz was appointed as interim superintendent during a special board meeting in April after former AISD superintendent Dr. Meria Carstarphen accepted the same position at Atlanta Public Schools. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
