The Austin ISD School Board elects Matias Segura as the new Interim Superintendent

The Austinite will step into the role as the board continues its search for a permanent superintendent.

AUSTIN, Texas – The Austin ISD School Board voted to appoint Matias Segura as the new interim superintendent for the school district.

The vote was unanimous and came late Thursday evening, followed by applause from the board and meeting attendees.

“It is an honor and a privilege to serve this district. What founds me the most is that I watched my mother do it for 42 years. I just want to be the best version of myself to support educators like her,” Segura said.

He also spoke about his own time as a student in AISD, his daughters who were students in the district, and his mother’s time as a district teacher.

The school board selected the district’s current chief of operations to fill the position after former interim superintendent Dr. Anthony Mays had left to accept a superintendent position for a school district near Houston.

“I wanted someone different from our previous administration because the most important thing for me is that we regain trust in our community because we lost it,” AISD District 1 board member Candace Hunter said at the meeting . “I can say this with confidence about our selection: He loves AISD.”

Other council members echoed Hunter’s sentiments with confidence that Segura could help win back the trust of local families.

According to the district’s website, Segura oversaw construction management, design and asset management, facility maintenance, transportation and fleet management, food service, and warehouse operations. He was previously the district manager.

Segura will serve as interim chief for the next few months as the board continues its search for a permanent superintendent.
