The Santa Fe ISD Board began its search in January after long-time Superintendent Dr. Leigh Wall announced her retirement. The Board reviewed over fifty applications for the position and selected Dr. Kevin Bott after interviewing multiple qualified candidates.
Dr. Bott stated, “It is truly humbling to be named as the lone finalist for the superintendent’s position here in Santa Fe ISD. My family and I are honored to join the Santa Fe school district and community. I look forward to working with the SFISD School Board, our hard-working professional educators, and the Santa Fe community to ensure the continued growth and success of all students and staff.” Dr. Bott and his wife, Jennifer, have four children – Caleb (15), Emily (13), Jonathan (11) and Noah (3).
