SWISD names Jeanette Ball as lone superintendent finalist

Ball was named the lone finalist during a meeting of SWISD’s board of trustees Tuesday, according to a statement from the district. The board must now wait 21 days before trustees can hire her as superintendent. Trustees are scheduled to vote to offer a contract to Ball on Feb. 8.

If hired, Ball would replace Lloyd Verstuyft, who announced in October that he was retiring at the end of the 2022-2023 school year. Verstuyft had been SWISD superintendent for 13 years and an employee of the district for more than 30 years.
