Marble Falls ISD Names Final Superintendent Candidate


The Marble Falls school board has selected a final candidate to serve as the district's new superintendent.

Chris Allen is a deputy superintendent with the Lake Travis ISD, where he supervises extra-curricular programs and campus principals. According to the Daily Trib, Allen has worked as a Texas educator for 17 years. He holds a doctorate of educational leadership from the University of Texas.

Marble Falls ISD narrowed the field of 50 candidates to six over the last couple of weeks. After winnowing the list of candidates to three, the board Monday named Allen as the lone finalist to replace Rob O'Connor, who is leaving to take another position this summer.

The district must by law wait 21 days from the announcement to offer Allen a formal contract.
