Durham Intermediate School principal Debra Moore announced her retirement after serving 28 years in public education. Moore has been with DIS since 2010, leading this 5th-6th grade campus through the transition of new construction and the elementary move to Walnut Grove. Moore, a graduate of Texas Tech, started her career as a teacher in Lubbock in 1987.
Before arriving in Carroll ISD, Moore worked in Coppell ISD as Director of Student Services. She also worked at Burleson High School as Associate Principal for Academics. Moore will remain at DIS through the remainder of the 2013-2014 school year.
“We want to thank her for her dedication to CISD and wish her the best in this next phase of her life,” said Carroll superintendent Dr. David Faltys.
The position will be posted soon and be open to in-district and out-of-district candidates. Dr. JJ Villarreal, Assistant Superintendent of Student Services, will lead the screening and interview committee, which will be comprised of central office administrators, campus teachers and Durham parents. This group will serve in an advisory capacity. Dr. Faltys will make the final recommendation to the CISD Board of Trustees.
