Northwest ISD invites community members to meet Dr. Mark Foust, incoming superintendent of schools, on Thursday, January 19.

The event will last from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. in the Northwest ISD administration building's board room, located at 2001 Texan Drive in Justin. All community members are welcome to attend, including students, families, teachers, staff and others.

Additional opportunities to meet Dr. Foust will take place, including Facebook Live video chats this spring for those with scheduling difficulty attending in-person events.

The Northwest ISD Board of Trustees named Dr. Foust as the next superintendent following a thorough search process. Dr. Foust joins Northwest ISD after spending six years as superintendent of Kerrville ISD. He also has experience at fast-growth school districts, as he previously spent the first 21 years of his professional career in Fort Bend ISD, a fast-growth school district in the Houston area.

Dr. Foust has earned a reputation as a leader who puts student needs first while balancing the academic and extracurricular success of schools with their fast growth. He plans to spend the coming weeks meeting with local stakeholders, including campus visits to greet students and teachers, as well as community leaders.

Trustees are scheduled to vote on Dr. Foust's formal hiring at their regular meeting on Monday, January 9. The following day, January 10, will mark Dr. Foust's first official day as superintendent.
