Northwest ISD has named Chris Hill as the district’s executive director of secondary education, making permanent the role he has served in on an interim basis since the start of the 2023-2024 school year. Mr. Hill brings a wealth of experience supporting schools as both a campus administrator and in human resources.
In his new role, Mr. Hill will oversee the district’s three comprehensive high schools, eight middle schools, Special Programs Center and Steele Early College High School.

“Students in secondary schools are entering a hugely important time in their lives, learning about their passions and what they plan to do after graduating,” Mr. Hill said. “I look forward to continuing to support our secondary principals in my new role so they can guide our students and staff for educational success.”
Prior to joining Northwest ISD in 2022, Mr. Hill spent 13 years in Hurst-Euless Bedford ISD as both a campus and district administrator. He began his career as a science teacher at L.D. Bell High School before advancing into administration. As an administrator, Mr. Hill also served as the Title IX coordinator, supporting those involved in the grievance process.
Mr. Hill earned both his master’s and bachelor’s degrees from the University of Texas at Arlington, with his graduate degree in educational leadership and policy studies and his undergraduate degree in biology.
