Dr. Jeanette Ball
Superintendent of Schools
In a special meeting of the Judson ISD Board of Trustees on July 16, 2018, Dr. Jeanette Ball was formally hired as the new JISD Superintendent. Dr. Ball has been the superintendent of Uvalde CISD since 2013. Before serving as superintendent in Uvalde, Dr. Ball worked many years (1998-2013) with Southwest ISD first as a teacher and principal. She was later hired as Assistant Superintendent of Administration and Human Services, Executive Director of Employee and Student Services, and Director of Staff Development.
Dr. Ball is a believer in Fine Arts and the impact it makes in student academic performance and achievement. She launched an effective Fine Arts Summer Program in Uvalde CISD that helped bring out the best in student potential. At the same time, Dual Language is a passion of hers too. She sees the doors that can be opened to students who learn to speak more than one language and the opportunities it affords in school, in life and as they prepare for their careers.
Aside from her profession, Dr. Ball has been married to her husband Joe for 17 years and they have numerous nieces and nephews with whom they enjoy spending a lot of time.
Dr. Ball takes over for Dr. Carl Montoya who is retiring at the end of this summer after three years as Superintendent at JISD.
