The Austin ISD School Board of Trustees appointed Matias Segura as the district’s superintendent at its regular board voting meeting Thursday.
Segura's deep roots in the Austin ISD community, as both a former student and the son of a longtime teacher, make him uniquely qualified to understand and address the needs of the district.
He attended Kocurek Elementary, Covington Middle School and graduated from James Bowie High School. His mother was a former teacher serving more than four decades at Austin ISD.
The board officially extended and approved a contract for Segura during the meeting.
Segura is currently completing a Superintendent Educator Preparatory Program, which along with other requirements would allow him to obtain a Superintendent Certification.
