Princeton ISD names lone finalist for superintendent

Donald McIntyre The Princeton ISD Board of Trustees met Tuesday night and named Donald McIntyre the lone finalist for the position of superintendent for Princeton Independent School District.

The state requires a 21-day waiting period, after which the trustees are expected to offer Mr. McIntyre a contract for employment.

“The board was excited to have such qualified candidates who have already served the district so well, and we look forward to working with Mr. McIntyre, who is ready to fill the role of superintendent,” said PISD board president Carol Bodwell. “He has a love and passion for the kids and a vision that we know will keep the district on the path we are already headed down.”

Mr. McIntyre and his wife, Amber, who is the district testing coordinator, live in Princeton with their daughter, Lindsey, a 4th-grader at Smith Elementary.

He is currently an assistant superintendent for the district, a position he has held since 2015. He began this role with an emphasis on secondary curriculum, and most recently, his area of focus has been on student services.

Mr. McIntyre is a graduate of Southeastern Oklahoma State University, where he received his Bachelor of Science in Mathematics Education in 2000. In 2009, he received his Masters in Educational Administration from the University of North Texas. He completed the superintendent’s certification program with Texas A&M-Commerce in 2014.

He began his education career with Whitesboro ISD before coming to Princeton in 2001, where he started at Clark Middle School as a math teacher and coach. From there, he joined the staff of Princeton High School. During his tenure with PHS, he was an Algebra I, geometry, SAT prep and math remediation teacher, as well as a coach for volleyball, tennis, basketball and track.

After teaching and coaching at PHS for eight years, he spent three years as the dean of students before joining the district’s senior administration team.
