Tim McClure named A4LE Planner of the Year

The Southern Region of Association for Learning Environments has named Tim McClure, Northwest ISD’s assistant superintendent for facilities, as its Planner of the Year, the top distinction from the organization that focuses on school environments.

For more than 50 years, the Southern Chapter of A4LE has awarded its Planner of the Year distinction to school administrators across the region who oversee outstanding the development and maintenance of educational facilities. Mr. McClure is the first honoree representing a North Texas school district to earn the distinction since 1990.

As Northwest ISD’s assistant superintendent for facilities, Mr. McClure oversees the design and construction process of all district schools. An architect by trade, Mr. McClure works closely with contractors to ensure Northwest ISD’s schools provide unique and strong learning experiences for students and teachers. Additionally, he oversees the planning of the district’s bond programs, including its recent $1.995 billion bond package approved by voters in 2023.

During his time leading the district’s facilities, Northwest ISD schools have earned multiple Caudill Class Awards for school design and innovation from the Exhibit for School Architecture. These winners include Lance Thompson Elementary School, the Northwest ISD Outdoor Learning Center and Eaton High School. Only four or fewer Caudill Class distinctions have been awarded each year since the program began in 2015. No other district has won more than two Caudill Class Awards.
