He will inspire and drive excellence with adults and scholars alike.” Hernandez will replace out-going Interim Superintendent Philip Chavez.

Dr. Hernandez’s start date is July 1, 2018.

The Edgewood ISD Board of Managers followed an extensive process in determining the finalist and hiring of Dr. Hernandez.

TASB consultants met with staff and community groups in April to discuss leadership qualities of the new superintendent.
