Dr. Carl Montoya, JISD

It is such a pleasure to be working here in the

Judson Independent School District. I have been

busy doing one of my favorite things – visiting

different campuses to talk with students, teachers

and parents.

I want to get to know the people in this great

school district so I can help make it even better.

But since I’m the new kid on the block, let me

give you a quick rundown on who I am and how

I see us growing.

I have spent more than 36 years in education.

My formative years were in New Mexico, serv-

ing in districts in Albuquerque, Gallup and Las

Cruces. I moved to Texas in 1994, where I

served in several administrative positions in sev-

en years with the Dallas Independent School

District. I then served six years as Aransas Pass

Independent School District’s superintendent be-

fore I arrived to a new opportunity in Browns-


Beginning in 2007, I served as the district’s as-

sistant superintendent, directly supervising

schools to help enhance student performance and

campus leadership. In 2011, I became BISD’s

interim superintendent, and later that year was

selected permanently for the position.

First off, school safety is my top priority as su-

perintendent. As a Certified Master Peace Of-

ficer, I know students’ learning capacities are

unlimited in safe environments. I am also cur-

rently vice chairman of the Texas School Safety

Center’s board of directors, and will do all I can

to make JISD, and other districts in the San An-

tonio area and across the state, as safe as possi-


My mission at Judson ISD is to build on the aca-

demic success the district has achieved in recent

years. JISD has become a state leader in several

instructional areas, where results have even gar-

nered international attention and visits to our


I want to enhance JISD’s successful Three Sys-

tems Process and further align the curriculum to

meet the academic needs of all students – those

ranging from low-performing to high-

performing. My vision is to see all of them suc-

ceed in our classrooms before translating those

experiences into the real world. With the growth

of career exploration for our students, we will

work together to

expand their ca-

reer-related op-


A big part of that

success starts in

Science, Technol-

ogy, Engineering

and Math – or


I thought this was

so important that I initiated a magnet program

that focused on aerospace engineering. That fit

well with the arrival of SpaceX, a space

transport company, to the Rio Grande Valley. I

want to see JISD’s STEM program expand as


My wife Debbie and I have been married for 30

years and love to spend time with our two grown

daughters when we can.

I’m excited to be a part of JISD and look for-

ward to working with parents, community,

teachers and staff to help our students become

more productive and competitive in this global

society of ours.
