Dr. Larry Watson

In June 2017, the CHISD Board of Trustees approved Larry Watson, Ed.D., as the interim superintendent.  Watson has more than 40 years of professional experience in the education industry. In 2012, he retired as the superintendent of Crandall ISD. Since his retirement he has served as interim superintendent at Blue Ridge ISD and has provided training to school boards and education professionals.

Watson was employed at Cedar Hill ISD between 1996-2003. During this time he served as the assistant superintendent of administrative services and principal of Cedar Hill High School.  

While the district searches for a new superintendent, Watson is assisting trustees and the administrative staff with maintaining the mission of the district during the transition period.
