The San Benito CISD Board of Trustees has not yet chosen a superintendent.

The board conducted interviews in closed session within three different special meetings this past week in a process that will ultimately determine the new superintendent for SBCISD.

Specifically, the board met in closed sessions on Monday, Oct. 20, Tuesday, Oct. 21 and Thursday Oct. 30 to interview the candidates.

Items C and D on the special meeting agenda for Thursday stated that trustees would also consider naming the lone finalist before discussing the possible delegation of authority to negotiate a contract.

On Thursday, however, the board took no action and is expected to continue discussions on the matter next week.

Last week, trustee Yliana González said it was likely that once the board finishes the interview process, members will need “to get together or wait a little longer to determine who the lone finalist will be.”

As for current superintendent Antonio G. Limón, he will serve as assistant superintendent of human resources based on a two-year contract with the district, though he has indicated that he may retire in the near future.
